James, 8, is a sweet young boy who likes French fries, pancakes, sports, and cartoons. But when James was diagnosed with a form of leukemia, doctors’ appointments and medical treatments replaced dining out and watching movies with friends.
As James faced many rounds of treatment, he dreamed of traveling to a special place filled with his favorite movie characters. James told the Make-A-Wish of Massachusetts and Rhode Island that a trip to Walt Disney World® to celebrate his eighth birthday would be the perfect wish!
James, his sister, and his parents were whisked away to sunny Florida. At Disney World, James and his sister met Mickey and Minnie, Wood, and Buzz Lightyear. During their amazing getaway, James and his family also explored Universal Studios and SeaWorld, and celebrated James’ unforgettable birthday!
James’ wish experience renewed his spirit and strength, and also gave him the chance to relax with his family in the most magical place on Earth. The memories of his incredible eighth birthday will continue to bring him joy in the future.
