Five year old Tyson was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age three while his dad was deployed in Iraq. Tyson is a little boy that is full of life and loves all things Toy Story, so it’s no surprise that his wish was to go to Disney World to meet Woody and Buzz.
His family’s time in Florida began with attending The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, which was a hit with Tyson and his five siblings. Tyson’s family stayed at Give Kids the World, and when they weren’t busy exploring all the different activities there, they were able to go to The Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Sea World, and Epcot. At the Magic Kingdom, Tyson finally got to meet Woody, and didn’t hesitate to run up and hug him. He was less thrilled about meeting the various princesses though. “Tinker Bell did manage to get a high five out of him, but that’s as close as he got to a princess,” said his mom Amy. This was a great trip for the entire family, and they created some amazing memories.
