Colorado Girl Fighting Cancer Gets Surprise From ‘Cinderella’
A 5-year-old Colorado girl fighting cancer had a dream of going to Disney World that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, didn't look like it was going to come to fruition. However, with the help of a Colorado organization with ties to Disney, the girl not only had her wish granted but was visited by one of her heroes in the process.
The girl, 5-year-old Mary Stegmueller, was tragically diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma back in October of 2020, which is a rare, incurable, and inoperable form of brain tumor. In fact, this form of cancer is so severe that children that have been diagnosed with it typically live for only six to nine months following being diagnosed.
Although Mary has been involved with the world-renowned Make a Wish Foundation since her diagnosis, the COVID-19 pandemic has put a damper on her wish of visiting Cinderella's Castle in Orlando's Disney World. However, an organization that originated in Colorado caught wind of Mary's situation and took it one step further.
The organization is known as Agent of Excellence and is made up of real estate professionals who have a passion for everything Disney. Coincidentally, while the organization has spread across the country and even into Canada, it originated in Colorado.
Brittnie Kreutzer, the membership director of the organization heard of Mary's situation and pulled some strings to not only grant her wish of visiting Cinderella's Castle next month but also arranged for a woman who plays Cinderella's character at the theme park to show up to Mary's home and invite her to the castle personally.
Mary will still be undergoing treatment for her condition, but will also thankfully have her wish of visiting Cinderella's Castle granted.
