When he was just two weeks old, Kyle’s doctor told his mother that he had a rare condition called methylmalonic academia. This is an inherited metabolic disorder in which the body cannot break down certain proteins which build up and attack the body’s major organs. This can lead to organ failure, visual impairment, seizures, a coma, or even death. In Kyle’s case, he has already experienced vision loss and he must follow a severely protein restricted diet and daily medication regimen.
For his wish, Kyle got to meet his heroes, Spiderman and Mickey Mouse, at their “homes” at theme parks in Orlando, Florida!
Kyle and his twin brother, Aidan, visited Sea World, Universal Studios’ Islands of Adventure, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom with their parents. Kyle was doted on by Mickey Mouse and both boys had a blast meeting their favorite superheroes and other characters. For Kyle and his family, his wish was a real dream-come –true.
According to Kyle’s mom, “There were so many great experiences. They were just smiling the entire time. You guys [at Kids Wish Network] really make life so much easier. There are no doctors, nothing during the trip. It was so nice to get away from it all for a while, for all of us. Thank you.”
