JJ, a 4-year-old boy with retinoblastoma, is about to have his one wish come true! Make-A-Wish® North Dakota is happy to grant JJ’s wish to meet Kylo Ren at Walt Disney World® Resort.
JJ and his family will travel from Bowman to Dickinson on Halloween. Even though he’s away from home, trick or treating is on the top of his to do list. JJ and his family will be escorted on their trick or treating adventure throughout Dickinson by several storm troopers!
The magical wish experience will begin on Tuesday, November 1 when JJ and his family board a flight for sunny Orlando, Florida. Once they land, the magic continues. The family will be staying Give Kids the World Village®.
JJ and his family will get the chance to explore all of the Disney theme parks and of course get to see the characters he is so excited to meet. He will meet Kylo Ren and other Star Wars characters as he has the opportunity to discover Magic Kingdom®, Universal Orlando® and Disney’s Hollywood Studios®. Most importantly, throughout this trip JJ and his family will have the opportunity to create amazing memories together.
It’s never easy for a family to go through the struggle of having a sick child but with this wish comes a chance to forget about illness, doctors, and treatment and spend quality time as a family. Wishes like JJ’s help restore the hope, strength and joy into these family’s lives.
