Madison: I wish to go on a Disney® cruise


“ It was great seeing the joy on Madison's face. ”

- Madison's mom

Madison is an active eight-year-old who loves playing outdoors. Although she battles a rare neurological disease that affects her nervous system, immune system, and other systems in her body, she doesn't let her condition get in her way of enjoying life. When Madison isn't being an active little girl, she enjoys watching Disney® movies with her family. 

Passionate about Disney, Madison wished to go on a Disney® cruise. This past February, Madison and her family flew to Orlando where the majestic cruise ship awaits her. As she set sail for her adventures at sea, Madison got the chance to embrace her childhood to the fullest leaving behind all the worries that are part of living with a life-threatening medical condition. 

Aboard the cruise ship, Madison got the chance to meet her favorite Disney princess, Ariel. She also enjoyed dinner at the Enchanted Garden dressed up as Princess Jasmine. “It was great seeing the joy on Madison’s face with everything she did,” said Madison’s mother, Ashley. "Being able to relax as a family and not have any worries about appointments – it was great.”
