“ The love and dedication that has been poured into this organization is evident and felt by the families fortunate enough to have been granted their wish! ”


- Cynthia, Kevin's mother

Kevin loves Mickey Mouse, so no one was surprised by Kevin’s answer when he was asked what he would like his wish to be. Bright-eyed Kevin looked at his parents and responded, “I would like my wish to be a trip to Disney World to see Mickey Mouse.”  Kevin has a difficult time remembering things, but after his Make-A-Wish trip to Walt Disney World, he made a memory he would never forget.

Disney World claims that, “A dream is a wish your heart makes.” Kevin’s wish was that his dream of going to Disney World and meeting Mickey Mouse would come true. This wish, and the joy that it brought to Kevin and his family, led to an experience they will never stop reminiscing about. It was a wonderful experience that far exceeded any of the family’s expectations. They are so very grateful that they were able to experience together all the joy and happiness that the fulfillment of Kevin’s wish brought him. It was hard to miss the grin that stretched from ear-to-ear on Kevin’s face while he adventured around Walt Disney World.

The Holiday family praised Make-A-Wish and all the volunteers that helped deliver one of the most magical moments in Kevin’s life. The family could not stress enough how polite, courteous, and friendly all the volunteers were and how they strived to make every family member feel at home. Kevin has strict dietary needs that the family worried would hinder his overall experience, however upon arrival in Orlando the family was taken aback by how prepared the meals were to exactly accommodate all of Kevin’s needs. It was little details like this that helped make Kevin’s wish the best moment in his life.

When asked to sum up the impact that Make-A-Wish has upon the children and families that it serves, Cynthia observed, “The love and the dedication that has been poured into this organization is evident and felt by the families fortunate enough to have been granted their wish.” Kevin was able to meet Mickey Mouse and experience all the magic that Disney has to offer. The impact his wish has had on both his life and his family is truly magical.
