Non-profit elevating cash to ship 5-year-old Visalia lady battling most cancers to Disneyland

TULARE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA. (KSEE) – The past year has been full of doctor visits and treatments for a family in Visalia as their 5 year old battles cancer.

A year ago, 5-year-old Kenzie was diagnosed with high-risk stage 4 metastatic neuroblastoma.

“Due to COVID, all hospitals had restrictions on the presence of both caregivers, so we were separated for most of a year,” said Emily White, Kenzie’s mother.

Now the non-profit “Campaign One at a Time” is raising money to send Kenzie and her family to Disneyland so that they can make memories outside of the hospital and Kenzie can meet all of her favorite princesses.

“To have the opportunity to go somewhere together and have an experience that isn’t about cancer, just having a family together and making memories … It would be a pretty incredible thing,” White said.

Kenzie’s Disneyland fundraiser has hit about half of its $ 5,000 goal so far.

Any money that goes beyond that goes to the nonprofit’s dream bank to help more kids like Kenzie.

Her mom hopes sharing Kenzie’s story will also help raise awareness about childhood cancer and more support for research.

“Most importantly, only 4% of cancer research funding goes to children. They deserve so much more than that, they all deserve so much more, ”said White.

Kenzie’s fundraiser will run until August 28th.

Disney has changed the mask policy at its US-based theme parks to reflect new guidelines from health and government officials.

Starting Friday, the company will require all guests, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face-coverings indoors at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California. Children under two years of age are exempt from this mandate.

The policy change comes as Covid cases continue to rise in the US. On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed course and Recommended that fully vaccinated individuals wear masks again indoors in places with high Covid transmission rates. This Hot spots include states like California and Florida.

Disney has updated its safety guidelines in line with local health regulations since the pandemic began, both domestically and internationally. Most recently, the company required proof of a Covid vaccination or a negative Covid test before entering its Paris amusement park according to French guidelines.

Avengers Campus will open at Disneyland on June 4

New superhero recruits can experience Disneyland’s Avenger campus on June 4th, Disney said during a theme park webcast on Thursday.

The new area is an extension of Disney’s California Adventure theme park in Anaheim, California features Marvel’s most powerful heroes from earth and stars.

“What I can tell you is that it’s great,” Josh D’Amaro told CNBC before the webcast. “I think it’s going to be an incredible addition to California Adventure. When you think of that [Marvel Cinematic Universe] and what happens on this front, first in ‘WandaVision’, is hot. It’s a hot franchise. And we now have the opportunity to open this thing to the world. “

The park was originally scheduled to open in July last year. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, California theme parks have been closed since March 2020.

Disney’s two parks in Anaheim will reopen on April 30th and is operated with a starting capacity of approx. 15%.

The new land has taken the place of A Bug’s Land and includes the pre-existing Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission: Breakout Ride on the edge of Hollywood land. There will also be a new Spider-Man attraction, a dining room called the Pym Particles Test Kitchen, and an area that looks to Dr. Strange based.

“We have the ultimate playground for Marvel,” said D’Amaro. “As fast as Kevin [Feige] and that the Marvel team can create characters and stories, we can incorporate them. “

Disney has already pissed off that the Spider-Man ride is based on the Worldwide Engineering Brigade aka WEB, a company that helps bring superpowers to normal people. The attraction offers guests the opportunity to test their Webslinger vehicle. Little spider bots are unleashed during the ride and you have to snap them up with your new web slinging powers.

Character meet-and-greets will be a huge part of the Avengers campus. Thor, Black Panther, Black Widow, and more will be roaming the country – visitors can catch a glimpse of the trickster Loki too.

D’Amaro teased “over-the-top” entertainment and technological innovation, including the potential to showcase the company’s stuntronics technology in the country. Stuntronics is a project that Disney pulled the curtain back on in 2018. Essentially, Disney’s imagineering team and development lab created a robot that can swing and flip through the air like a real stunt person.

In that case, the robot could look like Marvel’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

“There will only be a pair of glasses,” said D’Amaro. “There will only be things that you can’t believe are happening in front of your eyes.”
