Jordyn's Wish to Disney World

“ She started to understand the power of helping, since she received so much help during this process. ”

- Jordyn's Mom

When Jordyn was 5 years old, she developed a large blood blister on her arm. Her doctors did some testing on it and discovered it was more than just a blister; Jordyn was diagnosed with skin cancer.

She had to go through two different surgeries to remove the blister. After surgery, she started treatment where she stayed in the hospital for one month, and then continued treatment by getting shots at home. Today, Jordyn is cancer-free. 

While Jordyn was in the hospital for treatments and post-surgery, she loved to watch movies, especially Disney’s® Frozen. She fell in love with Princess Elsa, Princess Anna, and Olaf. She also loves to sing and would belt out Let It Go and other Frozen songs. When Jordyn was asked what she wanted for her wish, she had no doubt in her mind: se wished to go to Walt Disney World®! 

Jordyn and her family had a blast at the theme parks! Her favorite part was meeting the characters from Frozen. She was able to talk to and hang out with them for a long time! Jordyn also loved all the rides, especially the log ride. She even got to eat all kinds of food from the various buffets.

Jordyn’s wish marked the first time Jordyn went on a plane and her experience at the park did not disappoint. Jordyn’s mom said Jordyn was very excited and hyped throughout her entire trip. “Seeing her having a good time and enjoying herself, and that she was able to go on this trip, was so memorable,” said Jordyn’s mom. This trip happened soon after Jordyn found out she was cancer-free, so it was a very positive and happy time for her family and served as a celebration for their family.  

“Jordyn’s experience changed her because now she is more helpful toward those in need,” said Jordyn’s mom. “She started to understand the power of helping, since she received so much help during her journey.” Jordyn continues to sing and loves to watch all her favorite princess movies!
