Ella wished to go to Atlantis Resort

Ella wished to go to Atlantis Resort

“ Ella is a nine-year-old with the heart of a lion ”

Ella is a nine-year-old with the heart of a lion.

Her severe gastrointestinal disorders have brought countless procedures, surgeries and hospitalizations. But Ella has never let her diagnosis define her, nor has she let it stop her from living her life with joy.Ella wished to go to Atlantis Resort

She makes gifts for other kids at the hospital where she is treated, tote bags filled with crafts, toys and other fun stuff. She also includes a BRAVE medal – a race medal donated by an athlete to provide strength and courage to a sick child.

Ella’s wish trip to Atlantis was planned to coincide with the wish trip of her best friend, a girl she met at the hospital who battles a similar disorder. Her mom, Jamie, said the wish was, “everything they dreamed it could be,” and the smile on Ella’s face says she agrees.
