Boy Fighting Leukemia's Wish to Visit Disney World is Granted

9-year-old Logan Chevalier, from Bardstown, KY,  has Down Syndrome and is fighting leukemia. His only wish; to go to Walt Disney World. Big O Tires in New Albany helped fund Logan’s Make-A-Wish trip to the happiest place on earth.

What did Logan do when he found out he was going to Disney World? Ran around Big O Tires like Dash from “The Incredibles” and high-fived his dad.

Logan says he is excited to go to Disney World and he is going to ride rides when he gets there.

Logan has been undergoing treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for the past two years. He’s missed out on school and fun, but on Tuesday, September 10, he felt like any other boy while eating cake and wearing Mickey Mouse ears.

Greg Kimberlin with Big O Tires says “It’s a great thing to do, and it’s a great way to help a family who is going through the issues they’re going through. It just allows the entire family to escape and be a family and be a kid.”

All donations to Make-A-Wish stay 100% local as Cassidy Hyde states with Make-A-Wish. “All the money we raise in Kentucky and southern Indiana stays here to grant wishes for kids in Kentucky and southern Indiana.”

Logan and his family will be going to Disney World for a week at the end of September.
