I wish to go to Disneyland® in California

Due to his illness, Xavier-Zion has to avoid stressful activities because he gets tired quickly. His fragile immune system requires that he be in a clean and healthy environment. In addition, he is very sensitive to extreme temperatures. Xavier-Zion has to leave daycare regularly to go to the hospital.

When our volunteers met him, they met a caring and friendly child. Very articulate, Xavier-Zion has shown great interest in trucks, cars and superheroes. His wish was to go to Disneyland in California, to meet characters from the animated movie Cars, and superheroes like Spiderman!

His wish reveal was done in grand style. Since Xavier-Zion loves trucks, he went to the LaSalle Fire Station to have fun with the fire department. He climbed onto the truck and drew water from the hoses and then rolled them back up. He even received a small fire truck as a gift.

In August, his whole family left for Disneyland in California where Xavier-Zion was able to meet superheroes and the characters from Cars! They took the opportunity to dine with pirates at the Pirate's Dinner Adventure, go to Universal Studios Hollywood and even take a tour on the coast to see the Pacific Ocean.

Xavier-Zion had some beautiful encounters and his adventures will, without a doubt, remain forever engraved on his memory.

A special thank you to the Bonjour-Santé team who made it possible to grant Xavier-Zion's wish through the Adopt-A-Wish program! We would also like to thank Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire, as well as our partners: Sony, TuGo, Park’N Fly, WestJet and everyone who helped to grant Xavier-Zion's wish.
