Jeremie's wish to go to Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios

Thirteen-year-old  Jeremie is a typical teenage boy who loves hockey (he is a huge Montreal Canadiens fan!). He enjoys hip hop, watching YouTube videos and playing Minecraft. Jeremie has a heart condition and required open heart surgery when he was only three years old. His family has stayed incredibly close and his grandparents, especially, have been an incredible support system. 

When we met with Jeremie to learn what his true wish was, Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios were number one on his list. Jeremie loves roller coasters and had been wanting to experience Disney with his family for a long time.

On February 22, Jeremie and his family received the amazing news that he was going to Walt Disney World Resort. Everyone jumped up with joy and tears were shed! The magic began when a limousine came to sweep Jeremie and his family off to the Airport for a fun week in Orlando, Florida.

Special thanks for the generous support of WestJet, Give Kids the World and Sony Canada. Jeremie and his family had a magical week and they are extremely grateful for the memories and the generosity!
