Luke is a little guy battling a tough brain tumor. To change up his tough daily routine and give him a special opportunity to just have fun being little again, Make-A-Wish® Colorado granted Luke’s wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort!
Even though he was only three years old, Luke knew that the entire vacation was specially planned to make him feel special. He was the star and was treated like royalty!
When Luke was in the parks, he had a blast. But it was the Disney characters he met who were in for a real treat! Each of their days were brightened when Luke showed up with a smile and great big hug to give each one of them. He saw Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Pooh & Tigger, Buzz Lightyear and more, and was eager to share his contagious, kind and joyful spirit. His mom says that he still tells everyone about the characters he met.
Beyond getting to enjoy the magic of Disney, the trip was a great time for Luke and his family to bond together. He played and laughed with his older siblings and his parents treasured the moments where they got to watch their son completely forget about his illness.
“The trip made us all felt special. We have so many pictures that we love, to remember our time there,” said Luke’s parents.
