At 3 months old, Paul was diagnosed with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. This rare condition causes cysts to grow on the kidneys, which leads to liver and kidney failure. Paul is on a series of different medications to help with his condition; he is also currently on the transplant list for a new liver and kidneys and he may relapse at any time.
For his wish, Paul was able to spend some time just being a kid at the theme parks in Orlando, Florida. He spent two whole days exploring the Walt Disney World Resort and visited every land he wanted to! Paul was even proclaimed an official pirate on Captain Jack Sparrow’s crew and given a certificate to prove his piracy. At Universal Studios, Paul had a blast checking out the Magical World of Harry Potter and riding his all-time favorite ride, The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man.
