Eliza: I wish to go swim with dolphins


“ After years of chemotherapy, Eliza got to enjoy a relaxing and stress-free week at Disney. ”

Eliza has finally had her wish come true after enduring multiple rounds of chemotherapy. This adorable little five-year-old has been bravely fighting her disease since before she turned three but has refused to let it get her spirits down. For Eliza, swimming with dolphins was the wish of a lifetime and since she loves Disney Princesses almost as much as she loves dolphins. The thought of swimming with dolphins and enjoying warm weather take Eliza’s mind off her chemotherapy treatments. What better way to make those dreams a reality than a trip to Orlando, Florida?

Before departing for Orlando, Eliza was taken to Macy’s to get a full makeover and lots of cute outfits for her trip. Afterwards, she had a going away party at Maggiano’s where she was surrounded by loved ones who were thrilled that Eliza’s wish was able to come true.

Upon arrival in Orlando, the employees at her hotel, Give the Kids the World, gave Eliza and her family a friendly welcome.  While in Orlando, Eliza got to visit the Disney Parks. She enjoyed meeting her favorite characters, spending time with her family, and most importantly swimming with dolphins.
