Casen is a sweet four-year-old boy who loves all things Disney. When he was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, he found himself spending days at a time in the hospital. The only thing that could bring a smile to his face was watching Finding Dory over and over again with his mom. He fell in love with Mickey Mouse, too. So, when Casen qualified for a wish, going to Walt Disney World seemed like the obvious choice!
Casen loved the entire experience; whether it was meeting Baymax from Big Hero 6, riding the all the rides or eating all the Mickey-shaped treats he possibly could, he had a huge smile on his face. For Casen’s mom, the best part was simply watching Casen. She says that during their trip he transformed from a sick kid to a kid who could laugh and play and enjoy their time in the parks unhindered by illness.
“The wish gave us a break from doctors and hospitals,” Casen’s mom said. “But most of all it gave us a break from the unknown.” She says that the whole experience was magical, inspiring and humbling. “There are not enough words to express how thankful we are.”
