“ Johnny got to spend quality time with his sister, because they have to be apart whenever he is in the hospital. ”


- Johnny's mom

Johnny is a 5-year-old from Georgetown, South Carolina, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoid leukemia. When Johnny was given an opportunity to have his wish granted, he wanted to go on a trip that his entire family could enjoy and remember forever. Driven by his love for all things Disney, Johnny decided he wished to travel to Walt DISNEY World® Resort.

Johnny wasted little time once the family arrived for their seven-day stay in Orlando. Equipped with special fast passes to bypass the long waiting lines, Johnny was able go on as many rides as he desired at all of the Disney parks, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios. Johnny especially loved staying at Give Kids the World, the family said that it was a dream itself. The wish mother said that Johnny still talks about the trip and wishes he could go back. One of his favorite things about the trip was that he got to spend quality time with his sister, because they have to be apart whenever he is in the hospital.

All of the excitement surrounding Johnny’s trip made the week go by quickly. Between riding rides, hanging out with his sister, and taking in all of the attractions offered by the parks, there was never a dull moment during Johnny’s stay at Walt DISNEY World® Resort. Johnny's mom said, "We wouldn’t change a thing. It was amazing."
