Like a fairy tale: Mason visits Disneyland


Mason is 20 years old.

He has hemiplegia (failure of the muscles), as well as epilepsy and is accompanied by the team of Kinderhospiz Regenbogenland in Düsseldorf. With his one-hand-wheelchair, he is extremely skillful and manages his everyday life with flying colors. Mason, despite his heavy fate, is a joyful young man who also gets a lot of power and energy from music. His greatest wish was to visit the Disneyland in Paris. He loves Disney's characters like Mickey Mouse, Goofy and ice princess Elsa and turned to the Toni Kroos Foundation.


At the end of May, there was the itinerary. From Toni Kroos he received a signed backpack, so he could take his most beloved companions with him. Together with his nursing mother, who has two other nurses who have been severely handicapped, he started the adventure. 

The days at Disneyland Paris will be unforgettable for Mason. The vibrant and colorful world enchanted the young man on arrival and led him into a dreamlike time. He spent three days in France, joked with Goofy and – to his great joy - . The hand kiss for Mason by Anna, the sister of the ice princess, brought Mason the most joy.
