Thanks to the Sunshine Foundation, a young man named Logan Mangus of Pennsylvania had his dream come true with a special trip to Florida theme parks.
Logan lives with the challenges of having SCN8A mutation, cognitive impairment, and hypotonia, which causes a spectrum of neurological conditions, including epilepsy.
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. This has been a life-changing experience for Logan and for my family. Logan was so happy to meet his favorite superheroes at Universal Studios; Logan and the family enjoyed all the theme parks. The whole trip was a blessing,” said Logan’s mom Brandi.
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.
Logan’s “Dream Come True” was made possible through a generous grant from the Wawa Foundation, and through individual donations on the Adopt a Dream program.
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.
