Twelve-year-old Deonya is in love with Disney. Her favorite past time activities include reading, listening to music and playing video games. Deonya was diagnosed with a vascular disorder at a very young age and instead of just having to worry about friends, boys and the rest of the obstacles that are included in being in junior high; Deonya had to spent a lot of her time worrying about hospital visits and treatments. She knew exactly what her one true wish was.
In February 2014, Deonya’s wish came true. Deonya and her family were able to stay at the Give Kids the World, which is an exclusive village located inside Disney World. Give Kids the World is a whimsical resort that helps create magical memories for families with children with life-threatening illnesses. The village has welcomed more than 100,000 families from all 50 states and 70 different countries and Deonya had a blast being able to experience this with the other children. She and her family were able to enjoy a magical time together, just purely focusing on their family.
