Lucas' Wish to go to Disney World!

Lucas is 13 years old. He was diagnosed with A.L.L. T cell leukemia at age 9. After countless pokes, transfusions, tests, rounds of chemo and radiation- he is done treatment!

He rang the bell to signify the victory of this huge battle. His one true wish was "Once I'm done all my treatments I want to go to Disney world!".

On May 13, 2017 Lucas' wish came true! He and his family were off the Orlando for an experience of a lifetime!

Special note from mom: "Thank you to Make-A-Wish who made this little boy's dream come true. They granted his wish and we had a fun filled week in Florida at Disney and Universal Studios. Partnered with West Jet and Give Kids the World- was our home during this once in a lifetime trip for Lucas. His favorite things were teen night at the clubhouse, water rides (except the ones with big drops!) waterparks, meeting characters and seeing Elton Johns star! His favourite song is "I'm Still Standing" by Elton John and he thought this was a cool sign that he got to stand on his actual star. A huge thank you to all participating companies, donors and volunteers. You made this happen and words cannot describe our appreciation!" Lucas' Family

A special thank you to Play It Forward for Wishes for adopting Lucas' wish and making his wish come true!

Thank you Give Kids the World, WestJet, Sony and TuGo for helping make Lucas' wish come true!
