One local kid’s dream to go to Disney is granted.
Liam Ramos is a 6-years-old boy from Bear, and he’s getting a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
The trip is thanks to the Sunshine Foundation, a nonprofit that answers the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.
Liam was diagnosed with severe autism, global development delay and microcephaly, and thanks to the Sunshine Foundation’s golf tournament at Newark Country Club, enough money was raised.
His mother is Jacqueline Shweda.
“It’s amazing that people can come together for an event like this for my son or any child that has special needs,” said Shweda.
This is the family’s second trip to Disney World, but Liam was too young to remember it. Now, it’s bigger deal that he’s 6-years-old along with his twin sister, Mila.
“It’s Mickey (Mouse), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse it’s very specific so that’s why Disney’s a huge thing,” said Shweda.
The whole family, will be heading down to Florida probably sometime in the winter or spring.
