I WISH TO GO TO
WALT DISNEY WORLD® RESORT
Children battling life-threatening illnesses have a hard time imagining having a week to just play, let alone go on a magical adventure. In Kia’s world, doctor’s appointments and medication are part of everyday life.
Nine-year-old Kia is battling Lupus Nephritis and Systematic Lupus Erythematosus. Lupus Nephritis is a kidney disorder that is a complication of Systematic Lupus Erythematosus. Systematic Lupus Erythematosus is an autoimmune disease. Kia’s immune system cannot tell the difference between harmful and healthy substances. Because of this, healthy cells are attacked.
This fall, Kia and her family will travel to Walt Disney World® Resort. Kia loves surprises, playing, running around, video games and movies. She can’t wait to dress like a princess and meet all her favorite characters!
The Walt Disney Company will provide theme park tickets and other perks for Kia and her family as part of their overall relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation®.
