Cayleigh meets Mickey and Minnie on her Disney trip!

Cayleigh and Mickey

“ It was a break from treatments and hospitals. It was a trip all her own. It was her wish coming true. ”

Heading to Disney, as it is for most children, was high on Cayleigh's list and when she found out her dream would come true she knew she was headed for a whirl-wind experience!

 

Cayleigh with Mickey and Minnie

Ever since she could remember, 3 year-old Cayleigh from Brandon has adored the Disney character Tinkerbell. With her favorite color being pink and favorite movie being Peter Pan, it seemed only natural that this 3 year old with neuroblastoma would be ready to fulfill her wish of visiting Disney World.

At her favorite restaurant, with a bubble-gum pink cake featuring her favorite Disney star, Cayleigh was finally told her wish would come true! At the beginning of May, Cayleigh, her brother and parents headed for the magical place ready to meet the stars. On their week -long trip, Cayleigh was able to meet her favorite characters, including Mickey and Minnie, as well as explore all the exciting adventures at Disney World and the Give Kids the World Village!
