Elizabeth “Lizzy” Palomarez adores Mickey and Minnie Mouse and loves watching them on TV. She’s enchanted by Disney World commercials, and dreamed of seeing Cinderella’s castle. Lizzy struggles with epilepsy, a brain disorder that causes recurrent seizures. She deals with ongoing medical stresses, and her episodes and medications have caused additional issues and challenges. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made her dream come true with Disney Park Hopper tickets for her family to experience all four Disney parks, and by purchasing generous Disney gift cards to make Lizzy’s wish her own magical fairytale. Her family will also be venturing to Sea World.
“Lizzy has been dreaming about going to Disney for so long, and we’re happy she’ll finally get to experience all of its wonder and magic,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
