“ It gave us all a happy feeling. I think it's great for families to get this opportunity, especially because it gives you time to just spend time together as a family. ”


- Wish mom, Dellyn

Ironically enough, when someone hears about the "Happiest Place on Earth", they often picture Walt Disney World®. However, for Kekoa and his family, their ideal space is spending time together, worry-free. With Kekoa's wish, the two experiences were able to be combined for a fun, family-filled week.

"He was just so excited to go," Wish mom Dellyn said. "His favorite part of the wish was seeing the characters. He really wanted to see Mickey and Goofy,"

Relief was just one of the major impacts that this wish had on the family. They all cherished being able to escape the "real-world" for a bit, and just enjoy themselves.

"It has all just been so awesome for us. It was just an amazing blessing. All of the stress and doctors appointments went away for a little while, and we finally got the chance to relax," Wish mom Dellyn said.

Despite the long flights and occasional restlessness, Kekoa and his family remain grateful for the chance to have a week that had love and joy as the focus.


We are so thankful for everyone at Make-A-Wish for making this so wonderful and easy for us. It was great to have everything laid out for us, we didn't have to worry about anything ”

— Wish mom, Dellyn
