Faith is a rambunctious seven-year-old whose bright personality belies her struggles with a blood disorder. Diagnosed at birth, Faith’s medical journey hasn’t been easy and will continue to create obstacles that she will have to face with her unwavering optimism.
Living up to her name, Faith fills the room with hope, laughter, and a contagiously positive attitude wherever she goes. She loves to curl up in her mom’s lap and listen to Goodnight Moon before bed, chow down at Applebee’s with her brother, and sneak gummy bears every chance she gets. Faith absolutely loves her family who are fiercely supportive and protective of her.
Faith had her wish all picked out when the Make-A-Wish volunteers arrived at her doorstep. Nothing would be more exciting than experiencing all the fun activities that Walt Disney World® Resort had to offer. Her wish reveal was nothing short of extraordinary, with News 3 Las Vegas anchors, Kim and Dana Wagner, calling her up to the stage at our 2019 Walk For Wishes. After eagerly telling them her one true wish, they announced to Faith and the thousands of event participants that her wish was coming true!
Faith was speechless with excitement – her joy obvious by the radiant smile on her face. Soon, Faith and her family were staying in a giant hotel, cooling off in the water rides, meeting famous characters, and viewing exotic animals at Animal Kingdom. Each day, Faith exuded excitement and delight with every ride, show and park they experienced.
Faith’s medical journey is far from over, but this special trip to Disney World provides magical memories that she can draw from in the days ahead.
