Melia, 5 years old with Wilms Tumor is an energetic, cheerful little girl who loves anything to do with water.
Melia’s family had planned a trip to go to Hawaii in June, but unfortunately that trip had to be cancelled when Melia was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor, a cancer of the kidneys that typically occurs in children.
Melia finished her treatment in August and when she was well enough to travel, her wish was to go to Hawaii as the family had originally planned. Melia wanted to meet a mermaid, go snorkeling and play in the water all day. (and she loves Mickey Mouse!).
Melia and her family travelled from Victoria to the most magical place where sunshine, water, dolphins, mermaids and Mickey Mouse come together – the beautiful Aulani, a Disney® Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii.
“Melia had an amazing time. The resort was magical with plenty of pools, waterslides, beaches, Disney characters…you name it. It was so good to see Melia excited all day long. We knew in our hearts this trip would bring Melia incredible joy. Thank- you so much Make-A-Wish® for making this happen.” – Cory and Jen
