Elijah: I wish to go to Disney World

“ It allowed Elijah to spend much loved time with his brothers, just being boys and not having to worry about treatments or sicknesses. ”

Like many 11-year-old boys Elijah is an extremely happy kid that loves to draw and use his
creative mind building entire cities with tiny Legos.

Unlike many boys his age, Elijah was diagnosed with end stage renal disease at the age of ten, spending the majority of his time in and out of hospitals, going through treatments and having appointment after appointment. Despite the battles that he has endured, he still remains a delightful young boy that loves playing and just being a little kid. When it came time to decide what his one true wish would be, he decided that it would be fantastic if his entire family was able to take a trip to Disney World to be able to spend much needed, stress free time together.

In November, Elijah’s wish came true! Elijah, his parents and three brothers made their way to Disney World for an entire week! Elijah’s family is extremely close, so going to Disney together meant the world to them. It allowed Elijah to spend much loved time with his brothers, just being boys and not having to worry about treatments or sicknesses. Elijah’s parents were able to watch him enjoy himself, with no worries or obstacles in his way; the memories were irreplaceable.
