ODESSA, Texas – International children’s charity, Kids Wish Network sent 3 year old Bryce, who is suffering from a life-threatening illness, on an all-expense paid trip to Disneyland. Kids Wish Network is a Florida-based organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations.
Born 15 weeks premature, Bryce has had to deal with a vast array of medical conditions including chronic lung disease, partial blindness, hydrocephalus and hypothyroidism. From birth until 2 years of age, Bryce was on a ventilator and a feeding tube which has caused developmental delays and difficulties with speech. He has been hospitalized several times due to MRSA and Pneumonia and requires daily breathing treatments and must keep oxygen on standby.
For his wish, Kids Wish Network arranged an all expenses paid trip to California for Bryce and his family which includes tickets for Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure and Legoland California, as well as accommodations at the Embassy Suites Anaheim and dinner every evening.
“Bryce loves Mickey Mouse and the Mickey Mouse Club. He had so many memorable moments on his wish; He especially loved the Dance Party at Disney’s California Adventure with all of the Mickey Mouse characters. He had a smile on his face for hours after Minnie Mouse took a picture with him. We are so grateful that Kids Wish Network gave us this opportunity with Bryce.” said Glen, Bryce’s uncle.
“Nothing brings more happiness to me than putting a smile on a child’s face, it truly is an amazing sight to see,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Anna Lanzatella.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following for making Bryce’s trip so astounding: Cheryl Click, Rex & Sandra Peebles, Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure, Legoland California, Embassy Suites Anaheim, Captain Kidd’s Restaurant, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, and the Pirates Dinner Adventure.
