Glendale child with leukemia takes a dream vacation

Naomi Smith, a four-year-old Glendale resident with leukemia, was granted a wish to visit three Florida theme parks by the Kids Wish Network, a national children’s charity.

Naomi was two when she experienced cold-like symptoms that wouldn’t go away. Her pediatrician discovered that Naomi suffered from acute lymphocyctic leukemia, a cancer of the white blood cells.

Frequent blood transfusions followed and during that time, when Naomi began a strict regimen of medications, her twin sister Sophie comforted her the most.
