Check out Sasha and Donald’s Incredible Make-A-Wish Moment
One of my favorite types of stories to write about here at MickeyBlog are the tales of Make-A-Wish kids that had there Disney dreams come truth with a theme park visit! And that’s exactly what I’m sharing with you this afternoon.
For 4 year old Sasha she has always dreamed the sometimes grumpy but often adorable Donald Duck!
Sasha was diagnosed with leukemia and rapidly had to adjust from hanging out with her friends to spending long visits at the hospital. However, throughout the process Sasha never lost her smile! One of the things that made her the happiest were watching Donald’s silly hijinks on the Disney cartoons.
When Sasha found out that she was granted a wish through the Make-A-Wish foundation, here choice was easy. She wanted a hug from Donald!
With that in mind, at the end of her treatment, Sasha visited Walt Disney World with her family. On her big day at Magic Kingdom theme park., Donald was right there, waiting to greet her with open arms.
But that’s not all! Sasha got to spend lots of quality time with Donald where they took photos and colored pictures together. “I was really, really, really excited!” Sasha said. “It was magical. He even drew me a picture. It felt like he was my best friend!”
After her meeting with Donald, Sasha was able to spend the entire day meeting other magical characters and getting signatures for her autograph book. Sasha even got to ride Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!
For four decades Disney and Make-A-Wish have collaborated to make more than 145,000 wishes come true. You can find out more here: visit wish.org/Disney.
