BENEFITING: The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada
Little Daphne wants to go to Disney's Aulani in Hawaii and we'd like to make her wish come true!
As a mother, I find it heartbreaking to see a child with a life threatening disease and, as a travel advisor, I am compelled to help people see the world. Through this fundraiser, our team and YOU, can help send Daphne and her family on a vacation of a lifetime! Disney is famous for making magic and Aulani resort is no different. Aulani is a unique combination of the beauty and culture of Hawaii and Disney's magic. This is where the Disney characters vacation, so why shouldn't Daphne! This Christmas let's give back to this family, help them go on an adventure and make some memories together.
Here is Daphne's story...
Daphne was born jaundiced. She was soon diagnosed with biliary atresia, a serious liver condition when the bile ducts inside or outside the liver do not develop normally. Just shy of six weeks old, she had Kasai surgery to remove the bile ducts. Sadly, the surgery wasn’t successful. An ultrasound revealed that Daphne would require a liver transplant to survive. In November of 2011, she received her liver transplant but she nearly died. She spent weeks at a time in the hospital undergoing painful pokes and numerous surgeries. Daphne’s complex condition made her early life touch and go, not just year-to-year, but day-to-day.
Every day Daphne has with her family is a gift. Let's give them the gift of travel as well. Thank you!
