I Met Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater!

Name: Logan
Age: 4
State: MN

Logan is a playful 4-year-old who loves all sports, especially baseball and football. He also enjoys music and pretend playing on the guitar and keyboard. Logan’s favorite movie is Disney’s Cars and he also likes Spiderman and Star Trek.

When Logan was 12 months old, Logan’s parents noticed that even though Logan began walking, he always kept his elbows bent. At 18 months, he was constantly tripping while walking, which alarmed his parents. They took Logan in for an MRI, which revealed a tumor on his spinal cord. Because of the location of the tumor, doctors are unable to remove it via surgery, so Logan was immediately started on chemotherapy treatments. After 15 months of chemo, the tumor shrank several millimeters and it has not started growing again. Every three months, Logan has a follow-up MRI to monitor the size of the tumor, which is unfortunately causing him to have a weak arm and leg, for which he is participating in occupational therapy sessions.

For his wish, Logan met his favorite Disney’s Cars stars, Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater at their Florida home in Walt Disney World! He had a blast riding rides, seeing shows and enjoying the sights, but he could hardly contain himself when he saw his favorite Cars stars in person. For Logan, it was a real dream-come-true!
