Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a new wish every 34 minutes to children facing life-threatening illnesses. On their website, they say, "We believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us and inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve."
Meet seven-year-old Daisy Perez. Daisy was born with achondroplasia, which is a form of dwarfism. She has had to go through several surgeries already at such a young age, and has had to endure so much that Make-A-Wish stepped in to grant Daisy her greatest wish of all.... to meet Belle from her favorite movie “Beauty and the Beast.”
Daisy and her siblings, along with their mother, Claudia, and aunt, Patricia, headed to Orlando to make this dream happen. Finally, the moment arrived, and Daisy was about to meet her hero. “My sister told Belle that she was the main reason Daisy wanted to go to Disney World as her wish,” Patricia said. “Belle was so touched that she asked us if we had any plans afterward, and when we said no, she said, ‘Great! What if I take you on a tour of France?’“
Daisy was overcome with emotion and she, “started bawling her little eyes out from happiness,' her aunt said. Belle finished up what she was doing, took pictures with other guest and then proceeded to take Daisy around France holding her hand, to make her dreams come true. “It was special and sweet, and everyone walking around was smiling at the very precious sight,” Patricia said. “It was honestly too cute for words.”
But it didn't end there; Daisy even got to meet The Beast and dance with him too. To say she was thrilled is an understatement. She was in love with every minute of the day. “She woke up this morning and said, ‘I want to live here forever,’” Claudia laughed. Watch the adorable video, below.
