A Magical Dream Comes True: Dominic’s Unforgettable Journey

This week, we have the pleasure of highlighting the incredible story of Dominic, a young boy who recently embarked on a life-changing adventure known as the Magical Dream trip, courtesy of the Sunshine Foundation. Diagnosed with severe level 3 autism, Dominic’s journey was made possible through the sponsorship of the All-Volunteer Hammonton Wishing Well Chapter.

Dominic’s magical journey took him to the enchanting Dream Village and Disney World, where dreams truly come to life. The Sunshine Foundation, known for its commitment to fulfilling the dreams of children facing serious illnesses or challenges, orchestrated this once-in-a-lifetime experience for Dominic and his family.

Thank you from Dominic’s Family

Dominic’s mother, Jessica, expressed her heartfelt gratitude, saying, “The trip was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for giving my son and family this amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Thank you to Dominic’s sponsors and the Sunshine Foundation for your generosity.” Her words capture the profound impact this experience had on their lives.

Dominic’s Diagnosis

Dominic is diagnosed with level 3 severe autism. Level 3 autism, also known as severe autism, is the most significant level of autism spectrum disorder. Children with level 3 autism have limited or no speech, restricted social communication skills and sensory processing issues. They require a higher level of support and supervision through their lifetime. 


The All-Volunteer Hammonton Wishing Well Chapter‘s sponsorship and Adopt a Dream donors showcase the power of community and volunteer efforts in making dreams come true. Their support not only transformed Dominic’s life but also left an indelible mark on the entire family, providing moments of joy and respite from the challenges they faced.
