Brody Hangs with Buzz

When Make-A-Wish met with six-year-old Brody to learn about what he wanted most for his wish, it took him no time at all to tell us what he wanted! Brody asked for a trip to Disney so that he could have the chance to meet Buzz Lightyear!

Six-year-old Brody was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia when he was just 3 years old. Despite his battle with leukemia, Brody remains an extremely happy young boy with a loving family. He enjoys playing video games and is crazy about Spiderman and Buzz Lightyear.  That is why it was no surprise that when asked what he wanted his wish to be, Brody immediately knew that he wanted to go to Disney World to meet his favorite characters!  On their family adventure in Orlando, Brody and his family stayed at the Give Kids the World resort and enjoyed using their Park Hopper pass to visit Universal, Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld, and the Disney Parks.  Aside from being on a plane for the first time, Brody’s favorite part of his trip to Disney World was eating lunch with all of his favorite characters and, of course, getting to meet Spiderman and Buzz!  Brody and his family will never forget this magical experience that Make-A-Wish gave them.
