Cataleya was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis when she was less than a year old. She was born with several deformed discs and has already been through surgery on her spine and may have to go through more surgeries as she grows. Cataleya wore a back cast until the age of 2 and must continue to wear a brace 18 hours a day every day.
She loves Disney, her favorite Disney movie is frozen and her favorite princess is Elsa. She has always dreamed of going to a live Disney show. Kids Wish Network helped Cataleya realize her dream and sent her and her family on a trip to Disney Live! On Ice. She was thrilled with her wish and had a wonderful time seeing all her favorite Disney princesses and characters.
Cataleya arrived at the Santa Ana Star Center for the afternoon show. Cataleya was in awe during the entire performance and especially loved seeing Elsa and all the other characters from frozen perform. Cataleya’s favorite part of the performance was watching Elsa sing Let It Go. After the spectacular performance Cataleya and her family were treated to a wonderful dinner at The Cheesecake Factory. Cataleya even received a special slice of cheesecake made just for her before heading home from a magical excursion.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for making Cataleya’s dreams become a reality:
- Disney Live!
- The Cheesecake Factory
