He and his family went to Disney and spent time making magical memories. His family recalls that his favorites were the rides and meeting Mickey and Pluto. Learn more about Eddie and his journey.
Eddie and Nathan played Miracle League baseball together and their families are close. Jaimie Miller, the president and executive director of Pixie Dust Wishes, says that the connection the families share is special.
“They knew each other well, their families, and just knowing that and knowing that connection just makes us feel like this wish was just perfect,” says Miller.
