At the beginning of May, Cayleigh, her brother and parents headed for the magical place ready to meet the stars.

  • In June 2014, Mallory’s family’s world changed. She was diagnosed with leukemia, and life became about trips to the hospital, chemotherapy and constant uncertainty. Mallory’s family went through it all, together. Even though her family was always by her side, the medicine still took its toll, leaving Mallory feeling isolated and uncomfortable at times. The idea of her own companion – a fluffy one, no less – gave her strength. She knew that it would be small, cuddly and caramel colored … and its name would be MayBelle Twix. Mallory had a small, family-centered party to welcome her new puppy. She also invited close friends, her wish granters and her pediatric oncologist to share the moment – everyone who supported her through her journey.
