A YOUNG Browston boy who is fighting a life-threatening illness has had his dream of visiting Disney World come true.

Four-year-old Otto Davy is living with dilated cardiomyopathy and underwent a heart transplant in February.

His greatest wish came true when he flew out to Disney World Florida with his parents Richard and Isabel for nine days of fun and special memories.

Otto met his favourite cartoon characters and stayed at the Give Kids the World Village during the trip, which was arranged by children's charity Rays of Sunshine.

His 18 year old brother Sam also suffers from the genetic condition, undergoing a successful heart transplant three years ago and is now training to be a hairdresser.

Mum Isabel said: “Everything about the wish ran smoothly and we wouldn't have done anything differently. Otto especially loved meeting Donald Duck. The wish was amazing, wonderful in every way.”

Otto's wish was one of six, sponsored by a £9,898 donation to Rays of Sunshine from Imagine Co-operative Childcare's Voucher Dividend Fund.
