MACOMB, Mich. (February 2020): Gabriella loves Disney, dolphins, and swimming, planning a trip with her mom for a tropical getaway to Orlando and Tampa. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, gave Gabriella her Florida dream. In addition, they provided her and her mom with multi-day park hopper passes and purchased her a generous Disney gift card she could use for any purchases during her magical adventures at the parks. Kids Wish Network also purchased generous gift cards to Outback Steakhouse and Darden Restaurants, offering many different dining options during their trip.
To further heighten Gabriella’s exciting wish, Clearwater Marine Aquarium donated tickets for her to visit their renowned rescue dolphins, Winter and Hope. Merlin’s Magic Wand also donated tickets to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. She can’t wait for her tropical Disney adventure, and is excited to spend quality time with her mom.
Gabriella suffers from Chiari malformation, a condition where brain tissue extends into the spinal canal. “Gabriella can now have the full Florida experience she’s been dreaming of,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank Merlin’s Magic Wand and Clearwater Marine Aquarium for helping to make her wish so special.
