Capital Region girl with heart defect surprised with the trip of a lifetime


CAPITAL REGION (WRGB) - Baking Memories 4 Kids has added Cora Gargano to their list of “Amazing Cookie Kids.”

The organization sells chocolate chip cookies to help children facing life-threatening and terminal illnesses experience a vacation of a lifetime.

Cora just turned 5 and she has a congenital heart defect and chronic kidney disease, which requires surgery. The organization, along with the Wilton Fire Department, went to Cora's home to share the special news.

"It's unbelievable. It's definitely a dream come true, it's something that we would have never done for sure," said Cora's mother Kelly. "For someone to do this for us is amazing."

The founder of the organization and cancer survivor Frank Squeo says they have not yet met the amount of sales needed for 2019 to send more kids on a dream vacation. They ask people to go to their website and order some cookies.

Shipping is free.
