Disney On Ice sends Cheyann Taylor to Toy Story 3

A little magic happened in Abbotsford Friday night, when Disney characters took to the ice and made Cheyann Taylor beam with delight.

The grin was ear to ear, said her mother, Montana, adding that she hadn’t seen Cheyann that happy in a long time.

Cheyann, 6, was diagnosed with leukemia at age five. After a year and a half of chemotherapy, she is now finally in maintenance (the first stage of recovery).

But some of the new medication affects her mood.

So when Montana explained that Disney On Ice was inviting her daughter to the Toy Story 3 show, she was elated to see Cheyann “jumping off the walls.”

Pink wand in hand, Cheyann watched the show, the intensity peaking when Mickey and the cast came out.

Asking her parents how the characters got there, they explained they took a special trip from Disneyland.

Cheyann’s request for the Make A Wish Foundation is to go to Disney World.

The family is planning the trip in the new year.

Commenting on Cheyann’s recovery, Montana said, “She’s on her way. But in actual fact, it’s harder for her to get anywhere.”

Staying home from school last week, it was good for her to get out of the house, her mom said. Cheyann’s medication makes her  tired.

But her fatigue didn’t stop her from sharing the excitement.

She called her teacher Patti Evans on the weekend to tell her details about the Friday event.

Among her favourite parts – the green aliens dancing on their knees and Barbie’s performance.

Sitting with her mom, step-dad and little brother, it was a family night out.

“She was in awe seeing everyone. On Sunday she asked for more family time,” Montana said.

The Disney On Ice Toy Story 3 show ran Nov.  18-20 at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.
