MEET WISH KID CAPTAINS SUSANNA & LIZZIE
Susanna and Lizzie will be among our six wish kid captains leading the efforts at this year’s walk! Susanna and Lizzie have received their wishes and are now helping to ensure that other children with life-threatening medical conditions receive their one-true-wish.
Ten-year-old Susanna is creative, smart and the world’s biggest animal-lover. When Susanna found out that she would receive a wish from
Make-A-Wish® Mid-Atlantic after she bravely battled leukemia, she wished to be a zookeeper for a day! She loved the hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience taking care of the sea lions, reptiles and other animals.

Four-year-old Lizzie was diagnosed with a congenital cardiac condition and wished to go to Walt Disney World® Resort. This little princess’ favorite parts were meeting Belle, Snow White, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.

Y'all, this place is amazing. Give Kids The World is a very special resort made especially for "wish" families. I have never experienced anything like it. Every single person here has been run through the ringer, on multiple occasions. Every single parent here knows...read more
To be her voice is my honor and privilege right now. I truly thought she would be talking by now, I truly though she would be eating by now. But she is not doing either. So I will continue to press on for her. As the result of some very screwed up insurance rules...read more
