An 8-year-old girl from Mechanicsburg, named Shelby, who has been battling a blood disorder and undergoing isolated treatment, is set to visit Disneyworld through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Shelby, along with her parents, will soon travel to Florida, fulfilling her wish. The trip announcement was part of a Disney-themed celebration held at the Capital Blue Cross headquarters in Susquehanna Township. Shelby is particularly excited to meet Disney characters Mulan and Stitch during her visit. Additionally, she will be traveling with new Disney-themed luggage, a backpack, and a Simba doll. A representative from the Make-A-Wish Foundation highlighted the positive impact of wish fulfillment on children’s recovery, noting that many wish recipients eventually overcome their illnesses, attributing part of their recovery to the strength gained from their wish experience.
