STREETSBORO, Ohio — All Seasons RV teamed up with Make-A-Wish to grant a 4-year-old heart transplant recipient her dream wish to have her own RV so she can spend more time with her family at a local campground that is close to where her dad works over the summer.
The special RV reveal took place March 20 at 1 p.m. in All Seasons RV’s showroom at 9043 State Route 14 in Streetsboro when Alivia of Magnolia, Ohio
Alivia has experienced heart problems since birth, and at the age of 1, she was the recipient of a heart transplant. This surgical procedure is usually performed on patients with end-stage heart failure when all other treatments or surgeries have failed.
Today, Alivia is full of energy, and takes her radiant smile with her everywhere she goes.
“The minute we heard about little Alivia’s wish we knew we had to get involved and make this important wish come true,” said Jennifer Radel, owner of All Seasons RV.
“My father started All Seasons RV in 1973 because, as a family, we went camping and it drew us all closer to one another,” she explained.
“Hearing that Alivia wanted an RV because she wants to spend more time with her family at a campground close to where her dad works struck a chord in all us here at All Seasons RV, said Radel.
“We worked for weeks with the RV manufacturer to get this family-friendly RV, complete with bunk beds and important amenities, that will accommodate all of Alivia’s needs and her four family members,” she explained.
