Child with Cystic Fibrosis Wins Trip to Walt Disney World

About the Make-A-Wish Foundation

The Make-A-Wish Foundation works to provide families like the Gallaghers with their dream trips for several reasons. First of all, the organization is dedicated to providing children with life altering conditions with experiences that will provide them with lifetime memories. Many children who participate in the program have debilitating or fatal conditions and that organization is a way of providing them with an experience that will be both memorable and enjoyable. On top of that, the organization knows that for the families caring for these children, it can often be an extremely emotionally draining experience. Caring for a child with a life altering condition can take up a lot of parents’ time and resources which can in turn make it difficult to plan and enjoy fun activities. The Make-A-Wish Foundation gives not only the child a lasting memory, but also the chance for the family to rest and enjoy a fun and bonding experience together.
