Sophie's DisneyWorld Wish, 10 month cancer battle

My Daughter had a 10 month battle with a cancer last year, an especially nasty Sarcoma called Ewings Sarcoma. She was a champ, and qualified for the Make a Wish program. Her wish was to go to Disneyworld.

However, Make a Wish delayed all travel and now has a Vaccine Delay (kids under 12 aren't even eligible) and since she's 8, that means she can't get her wish till they get their act together, if they ever do. 

Being her Dad, and having learned in the last year not to delay living, I'm going to try and make this DisneyWorld Wish come true.

Anything helps, we plan to go in Oct. Neither my Wife nor I would do this for ourselves, but since its for a sweet kid, we decided to see what we might be able to raise to help her Wish, especially since the Make a Wish people got her excited about going...We'll take her no matter what, but thought we'd see if we could put a dent in the bill.

Sophie making the best of chemo. This is in the thick of it about halfway through her 14 rounds of chemo, post surgery. 

Just to share how tough this girl was. 

27 covid tests.
103 doses of chemo.
50 days in hospital for chemo.
11 er trips.
23 unplanned nights in the hospital post er.
14 transfusion.
3 surgeries.
38 lab visits for # checks...
