Thanks to the Sunshine Foundation, a special young lady named Cecilia of Illinois had her dream come true with a very special trip to Disney World In Florida.
Cecilia was recently granted a dream from the Sunshine Foundation for a family trip to Central Florida’s Theme Parks.
Cecilia lives with the challenges of having Diplegic Cerebral Palsy, a neurological condition that usually appears in infancy or early childhood and permanently affects muscle control and coordination.
Sunshine Foundation answers dreams to children with life-long chronic conditions such as: spina bifida, cerebral palsy, profound low-functioning (Level 3) autism, Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, severe epilepsy, Sickle Cell Disease, blindness, deafness, trauma from abuse, and others.

“Thank you, Sunshine Foundation, sponsors, friends, and family, for helping us have such a wonderful experience! Cecilia’s dream of going to Disney was a complete success! Some of her favorite parts were meeting Belle and Olaf, The Tower of Terror, and seeing all the animals at Animal Kingdom. The Dream Village was a safe, comfortable, and fun place to stay during our time in Florida! This was such an amazing experience for our whole family and gave us some much-needed quality time together after a rough couple of years of surgery and recovery for Cecilia. It brought such joy to my heart seeing Cecilia embrace her youth and the magic that Disney emanates! We couldn’t have made this happen without everyone’s help, and we are forever grateful for this unforgettable adventure! All our Love!” said the Tice family.
Sunshine Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations to make these dreams a reality for children that may be turned away from other wish-granting organizations that require a life-threatening or critical diagnosis.
Cecilia’s “Dream Come True” was made possible through a generous donation from Jersey Mikes of Feasterville, PA, and other donors of our Adopt a Dream program.
