The fairy godmothers at Make-A-Wish Foundation are sending 6-year-old Kiara Williams off to Disney World to celebrate her apparent victory against leukemia.
Kiara, who has a thing for Cinderella, was diagnosed when she was three and treated for two years at Long Beach Miller’s Children’s Hospital. Now that she’s feeling better, Disney has provided her with a dress, slippers and tiara and let her walk the red carpet at the premiere of Enchanted at the El Capitan Theater today.
Tomorrow, she, her twin sister, Kayla, 11-year-old brother, Brandon, and their parents will be whisked away for a week-stay at Disney World in Orlando.
Kiara tells FBLA exclusively (well, OK, we think she told this to Fox 11 News, too, but whatever) that she is most excited to “meet Minnie Mouse and the princesses — especially Cinderella.”
Kiara has never been to Disneyland, so this trip to Orlando should be an especially nice treat, said Kiara’s mom, Pumi Williams.
“It’s a nice end to all of this,” she said.
