Meet the Honorary Wish Kid

Weston

Weston is an energetic, curious three-year-old who loves to spend time with his family. On his one-year anniversary of completing treatment for leukemia, his one true wish was granted for an adventure-filled trip to Walt Disney World® Resort. 

The February 2015 trip was filled with non-stop fun as “Weston Warrior” and his big brother met all of their favorite Disney characters, went on rides, saw firework shows and even performed their own dance routine in front of an audience. The entire family holds the memories of Weston’s wish come true near and dear to their hearts, and in a letter to Make-A-Wish, said, “We were happy to have done all that we could while away on such a magical wish trip.”
