    • neuroblastoma
    • I wish to go to Disney Aulani
  • I wish to go

Jenna is a very unique six-year-old. She absolutely loves playing dress up, swimming and creating new arts and crafts! She always wears a smile on her face that stretches ear to ear. However, one day Jenna was complaining of pain in her side. The visit to the doctor revealed a lump, which turned out to be Neuroblastoma. The medical team removed most of the lump but because of its location (on the spine) they had to leave a piece of it there because the operation could have paralyzed her. Luckily, Jenna is doing very well and is just as adventurous as ever!

As soon as Jenna found out Make-A-Wish would be granting her wish, Jenna knew what she wanted to do! Ever since her class had a Hawaiian themed graduation, Jenna decided she wanted to go to the Aloha state! So without any hesitation, Jenna wished to go to Disney’s Aulani in Hawaii!

When Jenna arrived to her room there was a special welcome note from Mickey and Minnie Mouse! Some of Jenna’s favorite moments included watching the hula dancers, swimming and relaxing in the lazy river! While Jenna was at Aulani she met Minnie, Mickey, Goofy and Stitch! Although Jenna’s wish trip is now over, the memories she created there are going to last her a lifetime and give her strength when she needs it most. 

She loved her private meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie Mouse! ”
