Back in February, we reported that the Cobb family would be walking from Disneyland to Walt Disney World in honor of the late daughter Julia Cobb who died back in 2013 from a rare form of bone cancer.

The family was last reported in The Villages and close to reaching their goal and should be at Walt Disney World by this weekend.

“I hope that our walk alone sends a message to people that there’s life after tragedy,” said Jonathan Cobb, Julia’s father.

During their cross country trip, the family visited other familes affected by cancer and helped raise money.  Their goal is to raise $413,000 towards cancer research.
