Ayesha was in kindergarten when she was diagnosed with a rare cancer and told she would only live to the age of 16. She wished to go to Walt Disney World – a trip that her family thought would be her last. Now 31 years old, Ayesha works at Disneyland and is married. “That trip reaffirmed what my parents taught me about charity, caring and giving,” says Ayesha.
