Keaton's to go to train to be a Jedi at Walt Disney World®!

Keaton was diagnosed with Dravet Syndrome in 2008. He loves Lego, music and anything Star Wars!

In October we surprised Keaton at Saunders Farm with the help of the Capital City 501st that his wish would come true! Keaton would be going to train to be a Jedi in November 2018.

November 3, 2018 the family arrived at the Ottawa airport by limousine and were greeted by wonderful WestJet representatives that treated him like a VIP. Keaton and his family were on their way to sunny Orlando for their wish trip!

Wish through the family: “That was truly the trip of a lifetime! Such an incredible week for Keaton and all of us. He was treated like a king by everyone and he was smiling ear to ear the entire week! On the first day, as we walked through the parking lot to Legoland, he was literally skipping saying he couldn't believe his wish came true. Limos, Legoland, Jedi Knight training, and meeting his favorite superhero Spiderman were only a few of the week's highlights. At Universal Studios he was escorted by Storm Troopers several times which really made him feel special. We also discovered he's a big thrill seeker and enjoyed every single ride and roller coaster he could find at every theme park. To say Thank you just doesn't seem enough, for the lifetime of memories you have given us. We are forever grateful to Make-A-Wish, Tysen's Mission to a Million, Give Kids The World and the incredible generosity of Saunders Farm Family. You have all made our son's dreams come true and you hold a special place in our hearts...- Keaton’s Family...”

Thank you to Give Kids the World, Disney World, WestJet, TuGo Insurance, Sony, Special thank you to Tysen’s Mission to a Million and Saunders Farm for adopting this wish!
