Cecilia

Cecilia is a 9 year old third grader from Illinois with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. She has an identical twin sister named Sophia who is her very best friend. Cecilia wears AFOs and uses a walker and wheelchair to get around, but she is working hard on using crutches to help walk too! She works hard in therapy but she struggles moving her legs right. She has difficulties walking, moving, dressing, and showering. She sometimes feels left out because she can't run after her friends or play sports the same way. Cecilia loves singing, music, playing on her tablet, playing barbies and horses with her sister, drawing, cooking, and reading. She has always wanted to go Disney to see the princesses who she is convinced are real! She works so hard every single day. She goes through painful procedures and hours of therapy, and never complains. She inspires everyone around her with her drive and contagious smile! She deserves to experience the magic of Disney and that is her Dream - to have a Florida trip that includes a visit to Disney with her family.

    We have prayed for CeCe and her sister before they were born. We have heard and seen on FB her tenacity and perseverance.

    My children are right around her age and went to Disney World last year to experience the special Disney magic for the first time. It is a wonderful place for families that creates a lifetime of cherished memories. I hope her family gets to experience the same magic with this small donation.
