Tyler has spent a large portion of his life being admitted in and out of hospitals, enduring countless tests and undergoing numerous medical procedures. Thankfully today, he is a perfectly happy, healthy, and quite charismatic 6 year old little boy.
This wish has been years in the making and little did Tyler know that when he said those 7 magic words, “I wish to go to Disney World”, that the trip of a lifetime awaited him. In Disney World, Tyler was greeted each morning with smiles from enchanted characters and ended each night dazzled by special surprises left just for him in his villa. With the hustle and bustle of daily life and the tumultuous past few years, this wish is just what Tyler and his family needed! Tyler and his parents were able to giggle on rides, gaze at fireworks, splash in the pool, and simply reflect back on the past few years. It was during these times of reflection that their beautiful new reality truly set in.
“He made it!....Tyler made it through!....We are over the hump and on the other side!”
For Tyler and his family, this trip was not just Tyler’s Wish come true, it was a celebration of his life, of how far he has come, and of the excitement for all of the amazing things that the future holds for him. The day after the Fourth of July, armed with his favorite keepsake of Disney autographs and memories that will last a lifetime, Tyler touched down in New York and is now preparing to celebrate his 7th birthday....though this birthday will be a different one, because when Tyler blows out the candles on his cake this year, he will not have to Make A Wish....it has already come true.....and that is “The Power of a Wish!”
