Luke's Disney Cruise

For Luke and his family, the day of his leukemia diagnosis was a life-altering start to a new chapter. This strong, six-year-old warrior, who is now in remission, has undergone many difficult days throughout the rollercoaster of his treatment. A fun-filled, Disney Cruise Line® experience was just the break that this family needed to reconnect with the joys that life can offer, as well as with each other.  Wish mom Heather shared some details from the experience with Make a Wish® Colorado. “The trip was beyond amazing!! Truly, it was a once in a lifetime, completely mind-blowing experience.”

Heather’s favorite photo from the trip is a picture of her son Luke enjoying the serene views from their room on the ship. “From the porthole in our room he would lie there and gaze out at the water.” Besides rest and relaxation, Luke was able to experience everything that the cruise had to offer. Meeting Mickey Mouse, dressing up like a pirate, and enjoying an interactive dolphin experience were just some of the highlights from this incredible trip. This wish mom expressed her gratitude by saying, “We are INCREDIBLY thankful for all of the hard work you guys put into making this happen for us.”
