Camden, an 8-year-old boy from Cavalier, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic lymphoma. After his diagnosis, he was referred to Make-A-Wish® and soon, his wish is coming true.
Camden loves playing with squirt guns, four-wheeling, playing video games and spending time with his friends. However, because of his diagnosis and treatment, life isn’t always what he wants it to be. Camden’s wish experience promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for him and his family. Camden wished to go on a Nemo & Friends adventure and will be heading to Walt Disney World® Resort where he will do just that.
For Camden and his family, the time away from doctor visits, treatments and the stress of living with a critical illness will be a welcome retreat. They will stay at Give Kids The World Village® and have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World® theme parks. While at Epcot®, Camden will enjoy The Seas with Nemo & Friends attraction where Camden will see characters from the Finding Nemo movie in an aquarium setting as well as the Finding Nemo – The Musical, a Broadway-like show that tells the story of Finding Nemo.
Camden’s wish is possible because of generous supporters who understand the profound impact of a wish come true for a child with a critical illness. Some supporters want to leave a legacy so that wishes like Camden’s can come true in the future and have designated Make-A-Wish North Dakota as a beneficiary in their estates. These and other supporters are a family of givers and have chosen to give through Make-A-Wish to continue to make more wishes come true for the children we are privileged to serve.
