Bennett is obsessed with Mickey Mouse and wished to see Buzz Lightyear and all the other Toy Story characters. He’s been through so much after being diagnosed with Chiari malformation, a rare condition where the brain tissue extends into the spinal canal. Bennett underwent his first surgery to relieve his headaches within 5 days of his diagnosis, and has had three surgeries since. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made his dream come true, sending him tickets to Disney World and purchasing Bennett generous Disney gift cards so his family can have their magical time at Disney when they’re able to travel.
”Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai said, “Bennett’s wish will give him something special to look forward to and happy moments with his family that he can always reflect on.”
