Dear Heidi,

Just want to start by saying thank you for the WOW Experience. It was just that for us, WOW!

My husband Gary and I never thought that we would get to share Walt Disney World together with our children, Helen and Gus.

I remember being pregnant and taking chemo and wondering about all the things I was going to miss in my kids lives. Gus being 8 at the time and thinking that he was really just starting with life and Helen,she was just ariving. Just broke my heart….Gus and I always taked about going to Walt Disney World together. We had always told him that when he was about 11 or 12 we would take him, that way he could ride anything that he want to, well he is 11 now and he rode it all…

We have spent all of my retirement and our saving 3 years ago to pay for breast cancer and still paying for breast cancer left overs. We never thought that we would ever get money ahead to take a trip to Walt Disney World, so I made Gary promise that if something happened to me, to spend very little on me and take the rest of the insurance money and take my babies to Walt Disney World and tell them that it’s my treat and that I really love them.

The smiles on my kids faces were priceless. Seeing Helen’s face when the airplane took off with her for the first time and her asking if the sky had fallen…what a 3 year old thinks! Gus loved all the rides, I don’t think he missed but one, and it was broke down. He does want us to go back to the waterparks, we didn’t do any of them. With the park hopper and the pass that we got from the Town Hall in WDW, we seen all four parks and rode just about every ride. The hotel was awesome, the kids loved the big room, which we didn’t stay in the room very much though. The dinner with Goofy and Pluto was great, Helen is usually shy, she was not shy with any of the characters at all. The food was great and there was something there that everyone liked!

Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts and just know that you are all doing something so wonderful that can’t really even be put into words. This is just another blessing from God for us.

Thank you,
The Krapf Family!!

P.S. if there is anything that we can do to help bring awareness to what you all do, please let us know. We would be glad to help in anyway!
