Hannah Freezer, an 11 year old Muncy student diagnosed with leukemia in April of 2011, now has wonderful memories from an all expense paid Florida Vacation. Her trip was made possible thanks to the Lycoming County Brotherhood Alliance who sponsored the trip as part of their “Making Dreams Come True” campaign. The organization sponsors about 4 or 5 of these trips a year for kids in the county.
Hannah’s Mom Brenda Freezer said she found out about the trip for her daughter when she received a phone call from the organization about a year ago. Brenda had to get the clearance from Hannah’s three doctors for her to go on the trip and they finally got the green light for this October after waiting since last April.
During their trip the family was able to visit Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios. They stayed at ‘Give Kids the World Village‘, the 70 acre non-profit, “storybook” resort founded by Henri Landwirth in 1989. The resort was established specifically for children with life-threatening illnesses. The resort features a mini golf course, a carousel, horseback riding and even “ice cream for breakfast”.
