“Being away with my family and doing something together was the greatest gift of all”
In the beginning of 2013, Syrina started to feel very ill. She thought she was battling a malicious stomach virus. After a week of being violently ill, she noticed that the pigment of her skin started to change into a dark, odd shade. She went to the emergency room where the doctors immediately diagnosed her with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Currently, after months of treatments, Syrina has not had much success. She is scheduled for a stem cell transplant with likely complications.
To bring Syrina’s dream to life, Kids Wish Network arranged an all-expenses paid trip, including accommodations at the WorldQuest Orlando Resort, dinner every evening and, of course, tickets to whichever theme parks she wanted to visit. While in Orlando, Syrina and her family were able to visit Hollywood Studios, Epcot and SeaWorld. Her favorite experiences at the theme parks were seeing the dolphins at SeaWorld and the Rock-N-Roll ride at Hollywood Studios.
“Being away with my family and doing something together was the greatest gift of all, thank you Kids Wish Network” said Syrina.
