Izabel's Wish to meet Dora the Explorer

I wish to meet Dora the Explorer at Walt Disney World®!

  • Izabel all smiles in Florida

  • Izabel and family

Our trip to Disney this past January was truly magical. Before we left for our trip we were making preparations to bring hospice in upon our return for my daughter, Izabel. I am happy to report Izabel is doing extremely well and is now stable. Hospice has not been called in, she actually has not been this well in years. This trip created memories for all my children and for my husband and I. Thank you, Make-A-Wish, for allowing my daughter’s wish to meet Dora the Explorer come true. We will always have these memories to get us through the hard times we face in the future. ”
