Review for Take A Breather Foundation, Narberth, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dear Take A Breather Foundation,
I've shed many tears over cystic fibrosis and the toll it has taken on Emmett (and all with this disease), but this past week I've cried more tears of happiness than I can remember. To see Emmett, and his sisters, Noreen and Brigid, "take their breather" at the Give Kids The World Village was an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. This past week, the burden of CF was forgotten. From the pirate party and endless ice cream at Give Kids The World to Magic Kingdom, Mickey Mouse, Jedi Training, Epcot, and everything Disney World offers, Emmett experienced more fun times and got to live how a child should: without cares and lots of laughs! Even though he had to stick to his daily treatment regimen, the anticipation of fun for the day overshadowed this. We couldn't have taken this trip without TAB. Thank you! Thank you for giving us tears of happiness, instead of tears of frustration! Thank you, most of all, for the giant smiles left on Emmett's and his sisters' faces!
