Disney Surprises Young Transplant Recipient With Trip to Walt Disney World

You may want to grab your tissues for this one!  Disney Parks Blog shared that Minnie Mouse met one of her biggest fans, who happens to be an 8 year old girl named Lexi.  Lexi recently underwent a successful kidney transplant surgery after dealing with health issues for most of her life.  In Lexi’s case, her kidney was donated to her by her dad.  She was born without a bladder, which is a condition that few babies have been able to survive.  She is known for being an extremely resilient and exuberant young lady.  She was visited by Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan at Mount Sinai Hospital with… Minnie Mouse, who happens to be her favorite Disney character.  Not only that, Michael Strahan and Minnie Mouse announced that Lexi and her entire family was invited for an amazing trip to Walt Disney World!

You have to check out this amazing video below:

Last year, The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger announced a new $100 million commitment to improve the family and patient experience at children’s hospitals around the world. This patient-focused initiative expands our rich legacy of supporting children’s hospitals, dating back to Walt Disney himself, and makes experiences like Lexi’s extra special.

This family is amazing and we are so excited for them to get this amazing trip together!

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
