One of the complications that came with her cancer diagnosis is that Naomi has little time or chance to just be a six-year-old girl. She dreamed of a land far away from her life of hospital stays and doctor’s visits, the land of Disney princesses and the adventures that she knew from stories and movies. When a wish granter from Make-A-Wish® Colorado asked Naomi her one true wish, there was no hesitation when she said “I wish to go to Walt Disney World Resorts®!”
“We could not have asked for more,” Naomi’s dad expressed. He said that while they were at the parks, they were able to meet every single princess that Naomi wanted to see. They rode rides and indulged in sweet treats like churros and ice cream, which were some of Naomi and her sister’s favorite parts. For Naomi’s dad, the best part was watching his girls be able to cut loose and enjoy unadulterated time together—something that they had not been able to do since Naomi’s diagnosis.
Naomi’s dad said that there is nothing they would have changed about the entire experience. Naomi felt like a superstar in the Make-A-Wish office and that feeling never left, even after the wish was over. They are all so grateful to everyone who made this experience possible. Naomi will never forget it.
