Make-A-Wish Sendoff Party

The Make-A-Wish organization threw another exciting sendoff party over the weekend. This time the sendoff was for eight-year-old Kellan Todd at Cypress Lanes in D’Iberville.

Kellen was diagnosed with Rasmussen encephalitis in 2016 which caused numerous seizures. He had surgery to prevent the seizures which shut down the right side of his brain.

Kellan is in great spirits as the Make-A-Wish Foundation is sending him and his family to Disney World. Before the big trip, Kellan had a blast playing different games in the arcade section of Cypress Lanes.  Kellan’s mother, Joni, said, “Kellan has gone through so many hospital visits, doctor visits, and lab work. This is something that we were always looking forward to. It was always something we would talk about. Now that it is coming true, now it’s going to be something that we can bring all that memories back.”

The family left for Disney World Monday. Joni tells News 25 Kellan is looking forward to riding rides and meeting all the characters.
