WARNER ROBINS, GA – Diagnosed with the rare disease, Juvenile Dermatomyosis (JDM), 5 year old Cameron has faced more in her short life than many of us experience in a lifetime. Cameron recently received the wish of her dreams from Florida based charity, Kids Wish Network, to visit Disney World and meet Minnie Mouse.
Cameron’s condition of Juvenile Dermatomyosis is an autoimmune inflammatory disease of the muscles, skin and blood vessels. The cause is unknown and to manage the symptoms children suffering from JDM undergo weekly Chemotherapy treatments. While there is no cure for Cameron’s illness there is still hope, and that is where Kids Wish Network stepped in. Dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations, Kids Wish Network was happy to help.
“It was an absolute pleasure to plan such a special Disney wish for Cameron and see her ultimate dream come true,” said wish department manager, Jill Atchison.
One of the family’s most unexpected moments was walking into their suite at the Floridays Resort Orlando to find a personalized Dora the Explorer room especially designed for Cameron’s wish. Cameron’s mom was thrilled, “oh my goodness… I can’t believe they made Cameron an entire Dora the Explorer surprise!” During her stay in Orlando Cameron’s dream wish was fulfilled when she met all of her favorite characters at Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Universal Studios.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following for making Cameron’s wish so special: Floridays Resort Orlando, Chili’s, Pirates Dinner Adventure, Golden Corral, Wonderworks, Compassion Partners and Dollar Rent-A-Car.
Every child deserves a chance at happiness; a wish is a way of bringing them that joy.
