Cancer survivor and Disney cast member supports kids with life-threatening illnesses

Posted Thursday, February 18, 2016 4:35 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Ayesha Kazim, 30, of Orange recently signed up to volunteer at Make-A-Wish. She works for Disney (a fitting job for someone who dreams of granting wishes) in the online travel department. She’s awaiting her first Make-A-Wish assignment. She already has figured out what she’s going to tell the first person she meets with a life-threatening illness. “I’m here,” she will say. “My parents didn’t think I would be here. So don’t ever give up.”

Definitely a feel good story. And one that helps keep (or at least should help keep) perspective in terms of the "problems" we have in our daily lives.

What a great story. I've always supported cancer related charities since my grandfather passed from A very rare bone cancer, as well As give kids the world. There's a great charity for kids with cancer in the Charlotte area, for any interested,

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
