Jonas was diagnosed with NF 2 at age 8. He has undergone more than a dozen surgeries to remove tumors throughout his body, including his brain. Despite his physical challenges Jonas does not let his NF slow him down!

We found our perfect B Happy recipient in Jonas. He has an internal light that shines so brightly for all who meet him and an infectious smile! Due to health reasons he had to stay close to home and we were able to take him and to the most magical place on earth–Disney World! Our B Team member, Joel Levy, escorted Jonas and his family all over the parks! Joel, a passionate Disney lover himself, was able to show Jonas the best of the parks, the best foods, and the best place to view fireworks and parades!

A word from Jonas

“ I am short for words to express my gratitude for the spectacular trip with my family. The trip was four wonderful days, and they did it…I forgot that I was sick! I hope other young patients can experience this dream come true like I did.” –  Jonas Puig, June 2015
