I wish to meet princesses in their castle

Khloe is a six-year-old girl living with a nervous system disorder. Because of her condition, she has suffered seizures which have resulted in a loss of mobility on her right side and impacted her speech. She works hard at recovering through swimming and exercises with adaptation and rehabilitation therapists.

Like many girls her age, Khloe loves Peppa Pig, Dora the Explorer and singing along to her favourite songs. But what she loves more than anything are princesses. When we asked what her greatest wish would be, it was clear: she wished to meet her favourite princesses in their castle in Florida.

In April, Khloe and her family set out on their adventure! They first flew to Montreal with PAL Airlines and then boarded another plane to Orlando. When they arrived in Florida, they made their way to Give Kids the World Village. During her stay at the Village, Khloe had a great time enjoying the rides and meeting characters. Her wish to meet princesses also came true! One of her favourite moments was when she met Cinderella at Walt Disney World® Resort.

Khloe’s mother says: “Khloe was so happy that she did not stop smiling and was excited every day of her wish trip. As a family, we forgot about all that we had been through with her illness during that time and focused on making this the adventure of a lifetime. Khloe still talks about her magical trip to Disney and it has been months already.”

A huge thank you to Alithya for making Khloe’s wish come true through the Adopt-A-Wish program. Thanks also to PAL Airlines, Give Kids the World Village, Walt Disney World® Resort, Sea World, Universal Studios, Park N’ Fly, Sony and TuGo.
