Eight-year-old meets Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan before surprise trip to Walt Disney World Resort

On Good Morning America, the world was introduced to eight-year-old Lexi, whose inspiring story of hope and perseverance and touched hearts across the country. Lexi underwent a successful kidney transplant with her dad’s donation last week following a number of lifelong health issues. Lexi has repeatedly surprised her doctors with her resilience and exuberance, and this time was no different.

After her surgery, Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan visited Lexi at Mount Sinai Hospital with a surprise guest – her favorite Disney character, Minnie Mouse! The two shared a heartwarming exchange which led to an even bigger surprise: an invitation for Lexi and her family to visit Minnie again during a future trip to Walt Disney World Resort.

Lexi’s incredible journey to health is just one of many stories Disney will share in the coming years. Last year, The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger announced a new $100 million commitment to improve the family and patient experience at children’s hospitals around the world. This patient-focused initiative expands the rich legacy of supporting children’s hospitals, dating back to Walt Disney himself.
