Juliana's magical journey

Name: Juliana

Age: 4

Medical Condition:  Brain tumour

WishI wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort.”

Wish Date: July 2016 


Juliana was diagnosed with a brain tumour and has faced many challenges for someone so young. Physical and occupational therapy have helped Juliana following her surgery and chemotherapy to battle her brain tumour. She has weakness on her left side and requires assistance with many daily routines. Despite these challenges, Juliana maintains her optimism and joy for life. 


When Juliana was asked to make a wish, she knew what she most wanted. She asked to visit the happiest place on earth - Walt Disney World! Juliana loves Princess Elsa, Mickey Mouse, and was so excited to meet them and her other favourite characters on the trip.


Juliana's magical journey began with a luxurious limousine ride with mom, dad and her big sister as they headed to the airport. Once aboard their flight, they were able to meet their WestJet pilot in the cockpit and were given some special treats on the flight.  


Juliana was thrilled with the entire Disney experience. She met all of her favourite characters and marveled at the view of the Magic Kingdom. Throughout these happy days, Juliana enjoyed lots of swim time at the pool and splash pad with her family. Their stay at Give Kids the World Village® topped off the special wish experience.


Juliana’s mom said, “We loved the Disney Resort, the volunteers, the staff – everyone connected with making this trip an event.” 


Thank you to Walt Disney WOrld, WestJet and Give Kids the World Village for creating a memorable trip for Juliana and her family
