  5. My name is Colten. I have been diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis, failure to thrive, and asthma. My diagnosis limits my eating and makes me weak sometimes. Being able to be outside makes me happy. My favorite things to do are play x-box, ride my bike, and play with my friends. When I grow up, I would like to be a police officer. My dream is to take a plane, go to the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village, and go to the Florida Theme Parks. I especially would like to go to Disney World to ride the rides and see the characters. This will be my only chance to ever go. The character I would like to see most is Mickey Mouse, and the attraction I would really like to see is Space Mountain. This Dream is important to me because I wouldn’t be able to go if it weren’t for the Sunshine Foundation, and it will help me have fun without the worry of doctor’s visits and my Eosinophilic Esophagitis.
