Logan has always been a fun, happy and energetic 4-year-old boy that can usually be found running around, playing outside and pretending to be his favorite super heroes – Iron Man and Captain America. In the spring of 2013, his parents realized something wasn’t right when Logan began losing his appetite, had very little energy and developed a high fever. Shortly after, Logan was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Later that same year, Logan was referred to Make-A-Wish Colorado. When asked about his one true wish, without hesitation Logan hoped to meet his favorite super heroes at Disneyland® Resort. From start to finish, his wish was a whirlwind of adventures; visiting Lightning McQueen at California Adventure, meeting the transformers at Universal Studios and taking in all of the rides.
The most exciting day came when Logan visited Tomorrowland, home to the Marvel Avengers. He and his family had barely made it in the door when a staff member offered to show them around the exhibit, introducing Logan to his favorite heroes like they were old friends. Lifting Thor’s hammer, exploring Tony Stark’s Hall of Armor and even touching Captain America’s shield topped the list of lasting memories Logan took away from his magical wish experience.
“The entire trip we were continually amazed at how friendly and accommodating everyone was, we felt so special” Logan’s mother, Jennifer, recalls. “It was wonderful for the whole family to forget about treatment and just spend time together.”
Today, Logan is in remission and back to his happy, energetic self. Aside from medications and doctor-visits to maintain his health, Logan feels strong and ready to face new challenges like the super hero he truly is.
