One of our wish kids, Gene, got to meet Buddy Valastro the Cake Boss! He and Buddy made a cake together and had a lot of fun!

Kids Wish Network is an international charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations. Kids Wish Network assists children and their families through several key programs.

GENE'S STORY:
Gene is a bright teenager who loves music and baking. His favorite show is "Cake Boss" and he loves listening to and watching Broadway musicals. Gene also collects programs from his favorite Broadway shows and even builds small scale sets and items from musicals that he likes.

Gene was born with a very rare insulin disorder called Rabson-Mendenhall Syndrome; it is so rare, in fact, that there are only eight known cases worldwide. Because of this condition, Gene produces 100 times more insulin than normal and his insulin receptors do not work -- something that will eventually shut his body down and severely shorten his lifespan. Gene already endures twice daily insulin injections, but he is also part of a trial study to determine possible treatments for the syndrome, as there is very little known about it at this time.
