In October of 2020 at the age of four years old, Mary was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, also known as DIPG. A rare fast-growing form of terminal cancer that attacks the brain stem, this form of cancer presents itself in children.
Due to the covid pandemic, national charities were unable to fulfill "wishes" and Mary wasn't able to experience the Disney vacation she hoped for.
In 2021, Adam and Lora, along with friends, colleagues and Disney Club 33 members came together to send Mary and her family on the Disney World vacation of a lifetime.
In October 2022, against all odds, Mary exceeded expectations and reached her second year post diagnosis! We were able to send her and her family to Disney a second time to celebrate this incredible milestone.
Today, we have grown into a non-profit 501(c)(3) and are able to support multiple DIPG Warriors across the country. We help with travel expenses, medical expenses and Disney trips for these kids! Visit our Warrior page to meet the children we are currently supporting in their fight!
