This one took us to the Bronx, NY at FDNY EMT Station 26 to presented Jose, the son of Yadira Arroyo (former FDNY EMT killed in the line of duty) with a wish for him and his 4 brothers to enjoy. An all-inclusive trip to Disney World!!!!
In March, 2017 Yadira Arroyo, a 14-year NY EMT was on duty when a madman overtook her ambulance and ran her over, killing her instantly. Yadira was just 44 years old and left 5 beautiful sons behind. As grieving children are part of our mission, we knew that we wanted to make this wish special for the Arroyo children.
Jose, surrounded by his family and his mother's coworkers, and union brothers, could not have been happier. He's never been to Disney and was so excited and appreciative for the opportunity to spend some fun time with his little brothers. It was obvious that this handsome, well-spoken and gentle young man was the product of an amazing mother. Yadira's 5 boys will enjoy a much needed vacation in the magic kingdom to reconnect as a family and forget their circumstances for a little while. It was am emotional day for all us and a perfect wish for the children of a fallen hero.
