Samantha's Wish to go to Disney World

“ When Sam was really sick she lost some of her spunk, but the wish process relit her fire... ”


- Samantha's mom

  • Samantha , 7

    • Ewing's Sarcoma
    • I wish to go to Disney World

Samantha is a bubbly, outgoing 7-year-old girl who loves fashion, pink, and princesses. Her bright personality continued to shine even after being diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. During treatments, Sam could be seen sporting bejeweled headpieces.

Sam loves all things princess-related and claims to be a princess herself!  She loves to entertain and show off her princess attributes. When it came time to declare her wish, Sam knew she wanted to meet her favorite character, Princess Aurora.

Sam and her mom went on an amazing wish trip to Walt Disney World in Florida. While in Florida, Sam was elated to finally meet Princess Aurora and other storybook characters. One of Sam’s favorite memories of her wish trip was chasing and trying to catch frogs in the Florida rain.  

Sam’s mother shared that when Sam was really sick she lost some of her spunk, but the wish process relit her fire and the sassy, outgoing 7-year-old returned. Sam and her mother went to Disney World after Sam completed her last treatment, so the wish trip was a much needed celebration of Sam’s health.
