Taken from Update Email sent from Walk For Wishes® supporting Make-A-Wish®


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.

Lizzie's Story - Things I Say

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.
