Dying boy gets Disney World wish granted

Dying boy gets Disney World wish granted

GENEVA, Ohio -- One little boy with the odds stacked against him is inspiring thousands around the world who follow his family and their story.

Mason Tapia just turned 2 this summer. A Brain tumor with no cure means he may not see 3.

“Doctors basically said we're done. There’s nothing we can do,” said Mason’s mother, Nicole Buskirk.

“It’s devastating. The worst thing I've ever heard in my life," Buskirk said through tears.

Short of a cure, her wish for the whole family was to take Mason to Disney World.

Almost 100 e-mails and social media posts poured into Channel 3’s Dawn Kendrick on Monday from “Team Mason” followers everywhere asking WKYC to help get their wish granted.

One call to Jason Beudert of A Social Wish Cleveland and less than 24 hours later... DONE!

Tuesday evening, Beudert showed up at Mason’s home telling his family, "A Special Wish Cleveland's wish is to send you all to Disney"

“Life is too short. You Need to act. We need to act for our neighbors.These children are our neighbors. These families are our neighbors. We need to step up and grant the wish"

Mason and his family can be headed out next week if they want.

“Is there even enough thanks in the world? My gosh! This would never have been possible without a man who is so determined to make a difference in people’s lives," said Buskirk. "A Big thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

A GoFundMe page has been built to help raise more money for Mason and his family. DONATE HERE.
