Paula’s 10 year-old son Brandon was granted a wish in 2013, and since then Paula has been highly involved with The Children’s Wish Foundation in Newfoundland. She organized her first Children’s Wish Wishmaker Walk last year, raising over $6000!

Brandon was born prematurely at just 27 weeks, weighing two pounds and four ounces. Within a few days of his birth, doctors noticed hemorrhaging on his brain, and as a result, Brandon was diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy. He spent a total of 102 days in the ICU, and has since endured a number of extensive surgeries.

Brandon’s wish was to meet John Cena, and he got to go to WWE WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans! Brandon ended up meeting over 30 wrestlers!

Last year, Brandon penned Wishes in the Air . It highlights his positive attitude and optimistic outlook on life.
