Jaybian's wish to go on a Star Wars Disney Cruise

Jaybian is a vibrant 14-year-old teenager who has a seizure disorder. He enjoys singing, eating and most of all he loves everything Star Wars.

We have seen Jaybian at many of our events. He's usually dressed up like Chewbacca alongside the 501st Legion Capital City Garrison. We were not one bit surprised when he asked to go spend time with the Star Wars crew on a great big boat.

We surprised Jaybian by revealing his wish at our Make-A-Wish Gala. We had a huge group of Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion walk in and these magical words appeared on the big screen: "Jaybian pack your bags, you and your family are going on a Star Wars Disney Cruise!" He was overwhelmed with joy when he found out that his wish will come true.

In April 2016 Jaybian and his family were whisked away to the airport in a big stretch limousine where Jaybian's wish experience would start. Jaybian's mom told us, "This was Jaybian's first ever plane ride and he loved every minute. We had so many wonderful moments meeting all the Star Wars characters, Mickey and the gang, eating awesome food and so many activities. We even got to pet and feed stingrays. Jay loved swimming in the ocean. Not to forget going to dolphin cove to pet and kiss the dolphins! We had such an amazing time!"

A big thank you to WestJet, Sony, Disney Cruise and TuGo. And a special thank you to Tysen's Mission to a Million for adopting Jaybian's wish and making his wish come true.
