Orlando Florida but the park had not been completed at the time of her
wish.For almost three years Ariel continued to show no re-occurrence
of the disease until February of 2011. Again she went through Radiation
and Chemotherapy, this time with stronger drugs. That May she
underwent a dual craniotomy in which surgeons opened her skull to
access the tumor bed and clear away any signs of growth take biopsies,
She then contracted an aspergillis infection which delayed her
chemotherapy as well as a staph infection. For month now she has
been receiving chemo as well as huge amounts of antibiotics and anti-
In February of this year new growths were discovered on her brain
and on her spinal chord and she had lost the ability to use her right
leg. She underwent more radiation and stronger chemo. She has
since regained the use of her leg but the ordeal has left her
Through all of this Ariel has been the tough, funny, cheerful and
blunt girl that she always has been however our treatment options
are running out and her prognosis is not good. Her doctors have
given her months to live barring any unforeseen and remarkable
response to current treatment.
It is my families wish that we give Ariel the one thing she wanted
and was promised before her relapse. The trip to the Harry Potter
experience. We discovered that all "wish" organizations only allow
one wish per child, disqualifying her from any organized charity that
could assist us and so this is where we are turning to you for help.
The window in which Ariel will be healthy enough to travel grows
smaller every day so we cannot save for a trip that may happen next
year...we don't have that long. We asking you, our friends, family and
neighbors to donate whatever you can to send her to a place where
she can be truly happy. Down below is a paypal donation button.
Please feel free to donate whatever amount you wish, every bit
helps get her closer to Hogwarts. Any donations that exceed our
goal will go to Ariel's mounting medical expenses.
We are now living "for one more". For now it's one more time for
Ariel to be happy and feel like an ordinary kid again. After that it will
be one more Summer. One more birthday. One more Christmas.
Each "One more" we can reach will be a victory for her. Please help
us give her this "one more" chance to be, well, Ariel again.
In October of 2007 my daughter Ariel was diagnosed with
Rhabdomyosarcoma, a type of cancer with a very low survival
rate. The Tumor had grown behind her right eye and was
considered inoperable. After a year of debilitating
chemotherapy and radiation Ariel was showing no sign of

which was to take the family to Disneyland. This was in fact
her second choice. Her first had been to go to the Harry Potter
