Thank you from Cecilia’s Family
“Thank you, Sunshine Foundation, sponsors, friends, and family, for helping us have such a wonderful experience! Cecilia’s dream of going to Disney was a complete success! Some of her favorite parts were meeting Belle and Olaf, The Tower of Terror, and seeing all the animals at Animal Kingdom. The Dream Village was a safe, comfortable, and fun place to stay during our time in Florida! This was such an amazing experience for our whole family and gave us some much-needed quality time together after a rough couple years of surgery and recovery for Cecilia. It brought such joy to my heart seeing Cecilia embrace her youth and the magic that Disney emanates! We couldn’t have made this happen without everyone’s help, and we are forever grateful for this unforgettable adventure! All our Love!” – Cecilia and her family
