Hi friends! I have an angel in my class (4 years old) who has leukemia. She and her family were awarded at WDW trip through Make-a-Wish and they leave on Saturday!! I'm helping them plan, so my question is... Does anybody know about the Give the Kids the World Village? That is where my little angel and her family will be staying since it's for all the wish kids. Does anyone have any experience with this? Where it is? What it's like? Thanks so much! My sweet little friend and her family NEED this trip. They have been through so much and are still going through it. Thanks guys!!!!

I work at a preschool for Special Needs Children, and have heard of this organization. I do not have any personal experience with it, but I know they have a pretty good website you can check it out. www.gktw.org  Hope that helps. Prayers for your special angel and her family. - ncjal  216.4 #35 8:37AM
Oh, that's great! Thank you very much for the website!!! I will check it out right now. - BagGal  228.9 #31 8:40AM
You're welcome! I hope it helps! - ncjal  216.4 #35 8:49AM
It did, thanks again!!! - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:40AM
This brought tears to my eyes.  I don't know how you do it?  I don't think I could keep it together.  I will keep Zoe in my thoughts and let her know I'm sending her tons of pixie dust.  I know WDW will be the get away of her dreams! - DizneyGirl  667.7 #7 11:32AM
Thank you, DizneyGirl! She could use all of your pixie dust, thank you!! I do get teary-eyed around her often, actually. Luckily, I shake it off okay. I get teary-eyed when I think about all that she is going through, when she giggles with delight at silly little things, when she runs to me to give me a big hug, but mostly I get teary-eyed when the other children in our class help her and take care of her. I have a little boy in class (also 4) who loves to sit by her and play with her. He tells her how beautiful she is even without hair and he tells her he wants to "marry her when he gets big." It gets me every time. - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:40AM
Aww..no,i'm sorry..i wish i knew more about it:-( but i'm very happy that she's going to get to go to wdw. That's very sweet. I would love to volunteer for that organization one of these days. Please tell your sweet little friend that i hope she has a wonderful time in disney. When i hear things like that about sick children getting a chance to go to disney,it brings tears to my eyes:-( - mickeynme  156.4 #52 8:39AM
Thanks MnM! My sweet angel's name is Zoe. She will be 5 next month. She was diagnosed when she was 3. She's been in and out of the hospital for the last almost 2 years. I am THRILLED that they got this trip. She was just in the hospital all of last week. I spent a couple hours with her at the hospital this past Friday. She is the sweetest, kindest little angel. I love her and am so happy she gets to experience the magic of WDW in 6 days! - BagGal  228.9 #31 8:49AM
Awww! Your job is very rewarding. Disney is very good with those children so i'm sure she'll have a wonderful time. That's one of the reasons why i love it there so much. It's so much more than an "amusement park" It changes people's lives and touches their hearts. She's also very lucky to have you in her life...you have a great big heart and i'm sure she loves you. That's very sweet..aw:-( - mickeynme  156.4 #52 9:13AM
I get emotional:-( bless those little children. They have to go through so much at such a young age - mickeynme  156.4 #52 9:14AM
Thank you, MnM. I am the lucky one. She has changed my life in a very short time. I can't wait to see her face all lit-up by Disney magic! :) - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:41AM
They are going to make so many great memories at WDW, Disney will take good care of them on their visit! - Andrea84  653.1 #8 8:47AM
I think you're right, Andrea! I know they get a pass to go to the front of all the lines! I'm so excited for them!!!! - BagGal  228.9 #31 8:53AM
May want to check Disboards.com. At one time they were very large supporters of this organization in their fundraising. I assume they still are, haven't visited them lately so not sure. Hope your little angel has a magically time. - jacdanfan  7417.3 #5 9:09AM
Awesome. Thanks a bunch! - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:42AM
That is wonderful they get to spend time as a family in Disney. We have a friend who just had his wish granted to meet batman and spent some time in Disneyland with him a month or two ago. It truely is amazing what we do as a country to make these things happen. I will kee your little angel in my thoughts and prayers. Have a great day✨✨✨ - mmddgp  467.1 #15 9:15AM
I agree! Thank you for keeping Zoe in your thoughts and prayers. I hope your friend had an amazing time at DL and with Batman! Sounds awesome! - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:43AM
I'm happy little Zoe and her family are getting this magical opportunity to visit WDW! I don't know anything about the village but I hope it's a wonderful experience for them! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #18 9:16AM
Thanks Jalex! From what I've heard, I think it's going to be absolutely wonderful!! Sounds like they will be getting the special treatment they deserve! :) - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:43AM
Sorry can't help with any info..just wanted to say i hope her and her family have a wonderful time... - dxcmama  255.5 #27 9:42AM
Aw, thanks so much!! I think they will!! Zoe LOVES Cinderella, so she can't wait to go! - BagGal  228.9 #31 11:45AM
I had a pt this am with that diagnosis. He just got home for the first time. I had to teach mom how to administer antibiotics at home she was so overwhelm. I will going back tomorrow to attempt to teach her again. Good for you for helping them. I can't imagine what it is like and the stress level. - 5disneylovers  923.6 #4 11:46AM
Side track I saw already have the website. - 5disneylovers  923.6 #4 11:47AM
You are a wonderful woman. He and his mom are lucky to have you, your patience, your compassion. You're right about the stress level for sure. Zoe gets a little better, but then something else comes along. Her latest problem is that she needs another round of chemo, but the chemo is doing major damage to her liver and it can't wait it right now. I just keep praying... - BagGal  228.9 #31 12:08PM
Years of treatment. It never gets easier. This disease is the worst. I think of my my own children when I care for and teach others. Even if the insurance does not pay we give them what they need. It's the best thing to. - 5disneylovers  923.6 #4 12:12PM
That's AWESOME about the treatment. I know what you mean, I run home and hug my girls extra tight when I think about how lucky we are. - BagGal  228.9 #31 12:16PM
