Mother Creates Bucket List for Disabled Daughter

- BRYANT, AR--An Arkansas girl is living out her life's dreams while she can, marking off items on her bucket list.

It may sound unusual for an 8 year old to have a bucket list, but when doctors placed Skylar Stone on hospice care a few months ago her mother, Lindsey started making a list of things most parents want to see their children do, g to a sleepover, graduate high school. Now they're crossing off as many items as she can not knowing how much time they have left.

She suffers from Schizencephaly.

"She's got a little a less than half a brain altogether. You look at an MRI and it's all black no brain tissue just fluid," her mother explains.

Her condition makes some other typical activities, like going to a sleepover, nearly impossible. So her mother made sure to put it on Skylar's bucket list, a list she created to help her cope with Skylar's prognosis.

"When they put her in hospice it was a pretty big shock. I knew she was regressing but I didn't think we were at his point," says Lindsey Stone.

So Stone started writing and they got to work. One of her first achievements was attending a slumber party. Every night for the past two weeks, the pair have been busy making memories. Skylar has gone camping, gotten a manicure and met a few celebrities.

"She has the best laugh you have ever heard she makes you laugh with her," says Stone.

They hope with each photo and memory, people learn more about Schizencephaly and Skylar.

The family is also hoping to raise awareness with an awareness walk. They're hosting Superhero Walk for Awareness, featuring Super Skylar, May 10th in Bishop Park in Bryant from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. To learn more about the event and keep up with Skylar, click here.
