Elysia's Wish for Disney World

The day that Elysia received her cancer diagnosis, her whole world was flipped upside down. Throughout her treatment, her family grew stronger and braver than they ever believed they could. When Elysia was given the opportunity to have a wish granted by Make-A-Wish® Colorado, she decided upon a trip to Walt Disney World® Resorts to relax and just celebrate life with her incredible family.

According to Elysia’s mom, her daughter’s favorite parts of the trip were riding the rollercoasters and making friends with the characters she recognized from her favorite movies. Elysia absolutely loved collected autographs and taking photos with them!

“The trip was an escape from a year of fear and anxiety. It was a means of celebration - especially when we returned to the best of news. Thank you for that, we will never forget this trip,” Lauren shared.  This family adventure, from start to finish, made Elysia feel special and gave her renewed strength to continue fighting her illness.
