Little Patrycja loves princesses! During her chemotherapy treatments she dressed up as her favorites, complete with gown, cape and wigs. Her wish trip turned her dreams into reality when she got to meet these princesses.

In May 2014, Patrycja was diagnosed with Pleuropulmonary Blastoma, a rare type of childhood cancer found in children ages 2-5. She began chemotherapy on her third birthday. "During the year of Patrycja's treatments, we did not think about doing anything fun. Our lives consisted of going between home and and the hospital, making sure her body was strong enough, making sure she didn't contract any infections. That was our entire focus." 

"When you have a sick child or one who has gone through an illness, your dream is that he or she would come out of it without any recollection of the experience. The Disney experience played a huge role in helping Patrycja forget it and put it behind her. That was so comforting for us as parents to witness." - Wish Mom Joanna
