A 16-year-old in Oklahoma City was so proud of her panties that she decided to sell them to raise money for the local Wacoal Hospital.
She wore them to a school dance last month, where she performed with a Wacoaalee County high school band.
“I’m not going to say no to them,” the girl told the local station WOAI.
“Because they’re pink.”
It’s a story that could have been written by any high school girl.
But for the girl, who goes by the name of D.J., it was a life-changing moment.
“It’s like the biggest thing I’ve ever done in my life,” she said.
“For the first time in my whole life, I can tell someone that I have a family.”
“You’re so young,” she told the station.
“You never knew what the future would hold.
It’s like they said: I love you.” “
And when they say you’re amazing, you just want to thank them.
It’s like they said: I love you.”
D.G. was born with a condition called hydrocephalus, a condition in which the brain doesn’t develop normally.
She’s now 18 and says she’s in good hands.
She hopes to become an astronaut someday.
“That’s my dream.
I want to go to space,” she wrote in a Facebook post.
“If I get to go, then I will have accomplished my dream.”
The teen says she was inspired by the Waco Hospital, where doctors are helping kids with hydrocephalo-related illnesses.
They’re also helping her family get by financially.
“We have no health insurance, but that’s OK,” she explained.
“My mom works for a hospital.
She makes more money than I do, so I get paid a little bit more.”
Dwayne, D.D., was one of three girls D. J. helped raise money to support with a crowdfunding campaign.
They were among a handful of volunteers that helped make the WACCO Center an even bigger success than the hospital.
The center opened in December.
Dwayne is also planning to go on a cruise, which is an opportunity for Dwayne to become a father for the first of many times.
“They’re all awesome,” Dwayne said.
It wasn’t easy, but it’s something that she says she can’t wait to see.
“The hospital was a lot of fun,” she admitted.
I think it’s been a long time.” “
But I don’t think I’ve had a moment where I feel like I’m home, really.
I think it’s been a long time.”
“It was the first thing I had done in a long, long time, and I feel so lucky that I got to do that.”
