Disney's Field Of Dreams..

Thirteen year-old Chris Siders of Pensacola, Florida was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 11. After multiple failed rounds of chemotherapy and radiation treatments Siders was placed on the Make-A-Wish Foundation's wish list. Siders' AAU baseball team shaved their heads when he lost his hair and carried around a cardboard cut-out of him to games and practices when he was too weak to make it.

Siders has defied the odds and he is now an inspirational and active member of his AAU baseball team fighting for the AAU Baseball National Championship at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.

Disney VoluntEARS Celebrated...

With the Disney VoluntEARS program, Cast Members can volunteer to use their skills towards making a difference to various organizations in Florida.

Disney recognizes these efforts with VoluntEAR of the Year and VoluntEAR Team of the Year awards, which come with $2,500 cash donations to the charity of the recipients’ choice.

Last years VoluntEAR of the Year wasAlais Salvador, who won her title for serving more than 2,500 meals for the hungry and creating a Relay for Life team, which raised more than $56,000 for the American Cancer Society.

Disney report that "Within a week of being named VoluntEAR of the Year, Alais was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She underwent two surgeries and – for a short time – lost her ability to speak. As soon as she could, Alais began to volunteer again because “it’s a part of who I am and it just made me feel really good.”

After almost a year’s worth of speech and occupational therapy, Alais has almost made a full recovery. She’s active at work, in the community and as a mom. She credits volunteering to aiding in her recovery and strives to reach her 2008 peak of 607 service hours. Currently, Alais volunteers with the American Cancer Society, Bread of Life Ministries, Coalition for the Homeless, March of Dimes and helps at her church and children’s school."

She deserves great recognition for her efforts and the very best for the future.
