The Bird Family
The Bird family used to live a very typical life of routine and comfort. In June of 2020, their entire world stopped in a tiny hospital room in Salt Lake City when their 4-year-old daughter Brielle was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a fast-spreading cancer that starts in the nerve tissue. Brielle’s cancer developed in her abdomen and they discovered one large tumor and two small masses. The cancer began taking over Brielle's bone marrow.
For the past two years, the Birds' new normal consisted of Chemo treatments, radiation, bone marrow transplants, walking the hospital halls and being supported by thousands of prayers, so much love, and an immense amount of hope.
Brielle has fought hard and we were able to show her our love and support by donating all profit from one day of sales.
About the Walli Gives Back Program:
When Walli Cases was created, owners Nick and Jenna Emery were recently married and both emerging from what they would describe as the darkest times of their lives. They are both passionate about reaching out to others in need because of the huge outpouring of love and support they received during their trials, including Jenna becoming a widow with an 8-month-old son and more recently losing her mother to cancer, and Nick going through divorce. When they created Walli cases, they wanted to help others feel the same hope and encouragement, and the Walli Gives Back program was created. Each month, Walli chooses a family to support. This quote by Natalie Norton sums up why they are both devoted to "giving back" to others in their time of need: "There is always a light. Find it. Follow it. And then turn around and shine it as brightly as you can for those still feeling their way through the darkness."
