Five-Year-Old Moana Fan’s Wish Comes True in Boca Raton

Kinsley Wilkerson had her wish fulfilled yesterday at the Boca Beach Club, when she got to spend a day at the beach with Moana. 

Kinsley is five years old, and was diagnosed with brain cancer in September of 2018. She and her family traveled from Granite Bay, California to enjoy a Polynesian-themed beach day with her hero, the title character from Disney’s animated film Moana. 

Kinsley and her family were greeted by Moana, her pig Pua, her rooster Heihei, and the Chick-fil-A cows dressed up in coconut bras and hula skirts. Chick-fil-A has been Kinsley’s favorite food throughout her treatment. 

Photos from Kinsley’s special day can be found in the gallery below.

The magical day for Kinsley and her family was organized by the Southern Florida chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which has granted more than 12,000 life-changing wishes since 1983 for children who have critical illnesses.
