Dying child's lifetime of memories

Nine-month-old Quinn Linzer has Niemann-Pick Disease Type A, an incurable genetic disorder that causes brain disease, physical regression and then death, typically between 15 months and 3 years old. Determined to give her as many experiences as they can, Quinn's parents Eileen and Brett, have created a list of places, activities and encounters they feel everybody should experience in life. Quinn's List has grown to more than 30 entries, everything from being kissed by a puppy to going to Disney World.
