Girl with Epilepsy Experiences Magical Disney Wish

Alyssa loves theme parks and always wanted to visit Disney World. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes to kids with life-threatening illnesses made her dream come true, flying Alyssa and her family to Orlando, Florida for their magical Disney adventure. Kids Wish Network also provided the family with a generous gift card to use fore restaurant and hotel expenses. They received park hopper passes for their Disney adventure, enabling them to visit any of the four Disney parks throughout their stay. Alyssa had an awesome time at Disney, and was incredibly grateful for her wish. Alyssa suffers with epilepsy, and routinely has atypical absence seizures and convulsions, which have not been completely controlled with medication.

“We love granting wishes that create wonderment and joy for our Wish Kids,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.

Kids Wish Network is a national charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children with life-threatening conditions and struggling with life-altering situations.
