Shadrach has a magical smile that lit up when he found out he was going to get his wish to experience the magic at Disney World® and Give Kids the World in Florida. Shad is three years old, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy for his tumor. Shad loves everything Disney and he can’t wait to finally meet the Mickey Mouse he sees on television in person. His other favorite animated characters are Wall-E and the adorable minions from Despicable Me.
Shad also deals with hardships of his tumor that require a special strength to get through. As young as he is, Shad manages to get through it with that same inspiring smile, and his upcoming wish trip will encourage even more determination through the magic of Disney World. Shad is looking forward to seeing some of his favorite Toy Story characters sing, “You got a friend in me” at the theme park this coming winter. Most exciting of all is that he will be able to experience this all with his best friends and most important sources of strength: his parents.
