Hannah Scott, 3, was born with Down syndrome. Down syndrome is a genetic condition that occurs when an individual has an extra copy of chromosome 21, also known as Trisomy 21. The DNA material in the extra chromosome causes a variety of health and developmental issues. Each individual with Down syndrome is affected differently, depending on how that extra chromosome affects him/her. For Hannah, she has Celiac disease which requires her to follow a specific diet as well as some developmental delays and uses sign language as her main form of communication.
Hannah was granted a Disney wish at Pixie Dust Wishes' Race to Neverland in August 2018. Hannah and her family recently visited Disney in November.
"Honored. Overwhelmed. Grateful. So many words come to my mind when thinking about the gift given to use by PDW. With every kiss to Mickey's nose by Hannah; every laugh and cheer of excitement from our kids; every snuggle as our kids fell asleep at night or woke in morning-- the magic of DIsney was magnified by our connection with such an amazing organization. We have been welcomed into the PDW family and can't wait to pay it forward to other families in the future!" said, Tanya and Joe Scott
