A Young Woman With A Limited Time To Live Makes Visiting Dubai Number One On Her Bucket List


Jennifer Oritz, is a 24-year-old, from Colorado and was recently denied a third heart transplant from UCLA and has gone onto GoFundMe.com to publish her wish list.

Jennifer is suffering from a debilitating heart condition but has written in her post that she is trying to stay as positive as possible but is scared of not knowing what the future holds.

Being hopeful, she has started fundraising for her dreams and has published a wish list where the FIRST thing that she wants to do is to travel to Dubai to see the Burj Khalifa and visit attractions at Dubai Mall.

Other items that top her bucket list are meeting the Jo Bros, a trip to New York to check out the Statue of Liberty and going to London to visit the palace!

The 24-year-old has already raised over AED180k in less than a week and thoughtful comments for Jennifer keep pouring in from all over the world
