Name: Luke A
Eleven-year-old Luke has cerebral palsy, which is a group of brain disorders that result in impaired mobility and spasticity. Luke’s epilepsy is severe and he suffers from frequent grand mal seizures. He is confined to a wheelchair and must be monitored carefully.
When it came to wishing, Luke only wanted to visit Mickey Mouse at his California residence. As soon as he arrived at Disneyland, Luke made it very clear that “I gotta see the train!” He HAD to ride on “Big Thunder Mountain” and could not stop asking “How many tunnels did we go through?” when the ride was over. Practically each of their two days at Disneyland was full of theme park rides. Luke was constantly asking his mother “What ride?” and demanding “More roller coasters!” When it was all over, Luke summed it up with a big smile, proclaiming, “I saw Mickey!” He was ecstatic that his wish came true with Kids Wish Network.
