Michael Harris was recently granted a dream from the Sunshine Foundation for a family trip to Central Florida’s Theme Parks. Michael lives with level 3 severe autism.

Thank you for giving Mikey this wish trip, he had a really good time. As a family we went to Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, and Universal Studios. We really enjoyed ourselves. The Sunshine Foundation really made us smile throughout the whole trip. Thank you so much for a wonderful week,” said Michael’s mother, Kathryn of West Orange, NJ.

Sunshine Foundation answers dreams to children with life-long severe chronic illnesses and conditions such as: spina bifida, cerebral palsy, Level 3 severe autism, Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, severe epilepsy, Sickle Cell Disease, blindness, deafness, trauma from abuse, and others.

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, Sunshine Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations, and corporations.

Michael’s “Dream Come True” was made possible through a generous donation from the Sunshine Foundation All-Volunteer Joan Jake Memorial Chapter’s annual Bike-A-Thon. You can also help make a dream come true by donating at www.sunshinefoundation.org.

The most common request is a Magical Dream to visit Disney World, Legoland, SeaWorld, and Universal Studios while choosing to stay at the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village near Disney. Sunshine Foundation also answers Special Dreams: shopping sprees, computers and iPads, outdoor playsets, above ground swimming pools, family trips, cruises, adaptive tricycles and other special needs equipment, plus many more.

Since 1976, Sunshine Foundation has spread Sunshine into the lives of more than 42,000 children throughout the United States. For more information to refer a child or to make a donation, please visit www.sunshinefoundation.org.
