Writer With Cerebral Palsy Sees Dream Come True – Given Chance To Pen ‘Doc McStuffins’ Episode
We have a story that is sure to make you feel good on this Tuesday afternoon! According to a recent piece on Good Morning America, a Chicago writer is living her dream of working for Disney!
Erin Feeney has cerebral palsy but that hasn’t held her back from living her dream to being a writer of one of Disney’s amazing tv shows! That’s why we are excited to let you know that she was recently given an opportunity to pen an episode of Doc Mcstuffins!
Erin’s dad Kevin had this to say of the experience, “Ever since Erin was a little girl, she loved Disney and she wanted to be a writer,” said Erin’s dad, Kevin. “So she put the two ideas together, ‘I want to write for Disney.’ And it’s one of those things that you say, ‘Well how can that ever happen?'”
Opportunity knocked when Erin was invited to see Disney On Ice back in 2017. During this time she was introduced to the author of Disney Junior’s “Doc McStuffins.” Author Shea Fontana remembers the meeting, “I was able to read all of her stuff before I came and she is a very talented writer. So it’s just really amazing to be able to sit down with her and really share this passion that I have and she has, and be able to talk about writing.”
The story that Erin Feeney wrote is about a bird named Topsy who can’t keep up with her flock. Topsy doesn’t have a tail and the Doc McStuffins crew helps her. In addition to collaborating with author Shea Fontana, Erin Feeney also got to meet the actors who voice the characters.
Check out a video of this awesome encounter:
“Meeting Erin at the voice recording session was amazing and heartwarming, and so inspirational,” said Lara Jill Miller, the voice of “Lambie.” Erin’s father added, “Just seeing Erin have fun, it’s been wonderful. How many people actually have their dreams come true?
Erin’s episode of Doc McStuffins premiered yesterday on the Disney Channel, and Disney Junior. If you missed it you can check it out on the DisneyNOW app as well as the Disney Junior YouTube page.
