Full bio

My name is Boone Bergsma. I am 21 years older than I was supposed to be, I was born with a rare genetic disorder called Gaucher and doctors told my mother I would probably only live to be 8 or 9.

Praise God a when I was 7 a treatment was found that could be infused weekly to combat the effects of the disease. I was a make-a-wish kid and still remember how special it was for my whole family to escape reailty and live out a dream. I am so thankful for all the amazing people and companies that have been a part of my life and so happy to still be part of this extraordinary world. 

I am trying my best to launch a website to help support nonprofits, communities, businesses, and people making a difference. Please visit and give feedback to help the development of WTIM and help make dreams become reaility! Thank You :)
