Brielle M., Age: 12
“Wished to Go on a Disney Cruise”
Yorba Linda, CA – Brielle loves vanilla cake and the color pink. In school she enjoys studying science, and she loves listening to music by her favorite Disney artists. By all accounts, Brielle is a typical young girl. However, she was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and this, of course, caused a dramatic shift in her life. When the time came for Brielle to make her wish, her eyes lit up as she expressed that she wanted to go on a Disney Cruise. Unfortunately, due to Brielle’s cancer every time her wish date would arrive, she would not be strong enough to travel. After two years of medical ups-and-downs, she was ready to go on her wish.
Brielle, along with her family, arrived in Orlando to board the Disney Cruise destined for the Bahamas. For the next several days, they enjoyed nightly entertainment, sun-filled days on the ship’s deck, and interactions with many Disney characters, including Donald and Daisy Duck, as well as Mickey Mouse. From the beginning to end the cruise was everything Brielle dreamt it would be and more.
Back at home, Brielle continues to study science, eat vanilla cake, and listen to her favorite Disney artists. Now she has something extra to smile about, though. The memories she made with her family are a permanent reminder of the joy life promises. They brought peace for the moment and continue to provide. Brielle hope for a happier tomorrow. Her parents are so thankful for the Make-A-Wish trip they were able to experience as a family. They will forever be grateful to Foam Concepts who gifted their daughter with this trip…it was a dream come true for Brielle.
