A Dream Comes True: Trip to Orlando for 4 Year Old Girl with Cerebral
Fox to visit the theme parks (Disney, Universal, Sea World) compliments
of Sunshine Foundation
August 5, 2011 - Bringing balloons and gifts, Sunshine
Foundation President Kate Sample will be awarding 4 year old Hannah
Fox a Dream Come True � a trip to Orlando, Florida and the theme
parks for her and her parents. Dana and James Fox and her 6 brothers
and sisters. As a result of this �Dream Come True� Hannah will gain
some welcome relief from grueling medical treatments.
with Cerebral Palsy, Hannah recently came through a major medical
crisis. Last spring Hannah suffered from septic shock, a result of a
serious infection. She almost died. She was on a respirator and was
in a coma for 4 days. It was a nightmare for her parents who could
only stand by and watch as their beautiful little girl struggled in
the ICU at St. Christopher�s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.
Hannah is a fighter and came through the ordeal. After a month, she
was able to rejoin her four sisters and two brothers at home.
According to her mother Dana, Hannah is a beautiful little girl
who has the most beautiful smile that can light up a darkened room.
She doesn�t walk or talk, but she is the angel and �glue� for the
family. She brings joy and lots of love and when she grows up she
wants to be a princess. She loves to play dress up with her sisters
and listens to music.
Hannah is a huge Disney fan.
Sunshine Foundation will be sending the family of 9 to visit Orlando
on September 8th, just 2 days after Hannah�s 5th birthday. The
family is thrilled to have this opportunity to grant their little
girl an opportunity of a lifetime. Without assistance from Sunshine,
this trip could never happen. The family lives on less than $30,000
per year and their focus is on the necessities of life. The Sunshine
Foundation is a 34-year-old charitable organization with a mission
to answer the dreams of chronically ill, physically challenged and
abused children ages three to 18. Since its inception in 1976 the
foundation has granted more than 35,000 dreams to children who are
chronically ill and abused.
