It is hard to believe that a little under two years after David's initial diagnosis and hearing the term Make-A-wish in reference to our son, it is finally happening!!! We are a few days away from our big trip to Disney and we are over the moon excited. It is a super busy time in our household packing, cleaning, lesson planning, kids homework that they will miss, errands, and more packing! WE ARE SO EXCITED!!
To add to the excitement, our amazing Make-a-Wish volunteers helped us organize a send off party this past Sunday. It was so emotional, fun, precious, and awesome all wrapped up in one big emotion.
I know that several people have wondered if David's prognosis has changed and that is why he is getting to go on a wish trip. Amazingly there are certain diagnosis that automatically get to make a wish and cancer is one of them. He is still cancer-free as of now and we pray that he will remain with us for a very long time. Make-A-Wish is so amazing that your participation in their wish program is based on diagnosis instead of prognosis. They do have the ability to pull a wish together very quickly (in under 48 hours) if a child's medical status changes, however, we have waited over a year for our turn for this wish. We are so grateful for this family time together and look forward to the people we will meet, the adventures we will have, and the memories we will make together as a family! Watch out Disney, David Rock Star Robinson is on the way!!!
