Taylor is a very brave 8-year-old who battles Leukemia with a smile on his face and strength in his heart. Even on the bad days, Taylor continues to fight, knowing that his family is there to support him and uplift him during this difficult time.
When given the opportunity to have his one true wish granted, Taylor knew he wouldn’t be interested in a “to be” or “to meet” wish. He wished for something his whole family could enjoy along-side him; He wished to go on a Disney® cruise.
Taylor and his family had an amazing time from the moment the limousine picked them up until they returned home. Once they arrived at the cruise ship, the Disney® gang was there to welcome them aboard. There were so many things to see and do on the ship , but Taylor’s brightest moment was when he got to meet his favorite characters-Chip & Dale. After that, he got to have cookies and milk with Mickey and Minnie Mouse-talk about VIP treatment! Taylor was all smiles. Once at sea, the cruise ship docked in the Bahamas, and Taylor and his family were taken to a private beach where they swam all day, rode on jet skis and soaked up the sun. They finished the day by building giant sandcastles as the sun was setting. This was truly a picturesque moment for Taylor and his family.
No vacation is complete without some quality souvenirs, and Taylor was so excited to pick a few himself. He bought some t-shirts and hats, and of course Chip & Dale stuffed animals. When Taylor and his family returned home, he and his family had nothing but wonderful things to say about their trip. Taylor’s mom, Nicole, described the trip as “life changing,” and said that they were all so grateful that Make-A-Wish® was able to provide them with this amazing adventure.
