In 2015 at just 2 years old Zayn was diagnosed with a viral infection. The infection resulted in profound hearing loss in his right ear and moderate hearing loss on the other side. Zayn’s speech started to reduce and he regressed into himself. Shortly after his Dad found a lump on Zayn’s abdomen and was subsequently diagnosed with a Wilms Tumour. This is a type of cancer that affects the kidneys and is most commonly found in children under the age of 7.
Zayn and his family then spent a lot of time in and out of hospital for various doctor’s appointments, surgery and chemotherapy. Zayn is now 4 years old and he is healthy enough to spend some time away from all the appointments so that the family could have some fun together.
Zayn loves to watch Disney films with his brother. Their favourite film is Toy Story and their favourite character is Buzz Lightyear. Zayn’s parents wrote to Dreams Come True to ask for a dream holiday to Disneyland Paris so that they could have a break as a family and they knew Zayn and his brother would love a bit of Disney magic.
The family had an amazing time. It was just what they wanted and they have created some wonderful memories together. Zayn loved meeting all the characters and the family loved going on all the rides together. Some quality time together away from all the appointments was just what Zayn and his family wanted.
His parents stated, “Our overall experience was excellent. Having the disability pass made everything so easy when going around the park. Thank you!”.
