Kate (aged 5) from Cork is living with a rare chromosomal disorder and recently had her wish to go to Disneyland Paris granted.

Kate's mum told us, "Make-A-Wish granted Kate's wish to go to Disneyland Paris - all five of us and our lovely nurse Catherine! Getting our princess to Disneyland could not have been done without the help of so many people and we have so many people to thank;

Everyone who donated to Make-A-Wish for making Kate's wish possible.

Wishgranter Louise for helping ensure the wish went smoothly and wishgranting volunteers Fiona & Debbie who came to our home to go through all of Kate's wish details.

A huge thank you to Aer Lingus Special Assistance; the Service Manager, the Aer Lingus Duty Manager and the engineers in Cork airport.

The lovely air-hostesses on-board our Aer Lingus flights who were so kind and helpful to us - they really made a big fuss over us making us feel so special. The wonderful pilots who got us safely to Paris and again home to Cork and who welcomed us into the cock-pit to see how the airplane works.

Aer Lingus ground staff in Cork who ensured our transition from the airport to aircraft went smoothly. We were met at the door of the plane - they escorted us through the airport to our taxi, and again on our return getting us to our gate with the oxygen.

To our wonderful nurse Catherine who came with us and looked after Kate at night so Mark and I could sleep and be full of energy to enjoy our holiday to the fullest.

We had so many wonderful adventures and we are forever grateful to you all for helping make this trip wonderful and as stress free as possible"
Wish Mum - Lisa

Make-A-Wish granted Kate's wish to go to Disneyland earlier this month. Her mum told us, "from start to finish Kate was treated like a real princess. We went from one amazing experience to another. Every Disney princess and character we met went out of their way to make Kate feel special and at ease. We all had permanent grins on our faces from start to finish!"
