Last year, Angel spent the days gazing out the window of his hospital room as summer and autumn passed.
Thinking about all he had missed during his treatment for kidney cancer, the five-year-old wished for something as magical as possible: to spend Christmas at Walt Disney World® Resort!
Angel headed to Florida just ahead of the holiday and he and his family spent an enchanting week amidst the colors and sounds of the season. Angel’s eyes sparkled as he discovered cheerful holiday light displays around every corner. He met Disney characters and introduced himself to Santa Claus and his elves! He also visited SeaWorld and Universal Studios, and the young animal and dinosaur aficionado was in his element at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Park.
“This trip was a dream come true and really took my son’s mind off of treatment and hospital stays,” says Angel’s mom, Erika. On Christmas morning, amidst Florida sunshine, gifts were opened and happiness filled the air. It’s clear that Angel’s wish helped him and his family unwrap a world of hope, strength, and joy, making this a very memorable Christmas!
