We Loved our Wish!

Name: Caden and Mathew
Age: 8 & 10
State: OR

Both Matthew and Caden suffer from cerebral palsy; Matthew was diagnosed when he was six months old and Caden was diagnosed when he was three. Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that affect brain and nervous system functions such as movement, thinking, seeing and hearing. They both also suffer from renal failure and various developmental delays. In addition, Matthew has a heart condition and has undergone a surgery to fix his feet, which were crooked at birth. Caden suffers additionally from involuntary seizures, for which he takes medicine. Both boys rely on wheelchairs or strollers for mobility and have weakened immune systems caused by their conditions; they must follow strict daily medication regimens to help protect them.

For their wishes, both Matthew and Caden were able to visit the theme parks in sunny Florida! They had the best time riding rides of all sorts, seeing shows, and meeting their favorite characters, but the best part was just spending some quality time together with their family. For these happy little boys, their wonderful wishes have definitely been granted.
