Kayla Wishes To Meet Ariel!

Kayla is a charming six-year-old who has been diagnosed with Esophageal Atresia/Tracheo-Esophageal Fistula. 

Her wish was to meet her favourite princess, Ariel, at the Walt Disney World Resort. Kayla and her family spent a week at Give Kids The World where she was able to ride the carousel every day. "Meeting Ariel was an unforgettable experience. She talked with Kayla about mermaids, living under the sea, Flounder, Prince Eric, her daughter Melody, and everything else Kayla asked," said Kayla's mother. 

Kayla and her family enjoyed the rides, feeding dolphins and the special treatment Kayla received as a wish child. But most of all, they enjoyed a week of relaxation and peace, free from treatments and hospitals. "We can't speak highly enough about the arrangements made by Make-A-Wish that completely erased those medical fears we had coming into this. We enjoyed an incident free trip," said Kayla's mother. "We will always look back on this as a very special time in our lives".

Thank you to everyone who made Kayla's wish come true. The impact and memories shared will last a lifetime.
