Mickey Mouse ears sprouted on heads throughout Spectrum Health Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital on Thursday.

The diagnosis: A severe case of support for Make-A-Wish.

Disney Parks said it will donate $5 to the wish-granting organization for every mouse-ear photo posted online with the Share Your Ears campaign—up to $1 million.

Ellie Wilcox, director of leadership giving for Make-A-Wish Michigan, arrived at the hospital with a stockpile of mouse ears. Doctors, nurses and child life specialists posed for portraits.

Patients got in on the action, too.

Emily Watson, 13, took time from her treatment for juvenile arthritis to pose for a picture.

Her mom, Darla Watson, said she was happy to support the effort. She is grateful for a Make-A-Wish excursion that her son, Nickolas, took in 2000 to a Minnesota Vikings game. Nickolas, 8, died of cancer two months after his trip.

“It is a very good memory,” she said.

Carter Piglowski, a 4-year-old battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia, donned mouse ears and smiled for a photo with his mother.

Carter has a Make-A-Wish trip planned in October to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Planning the family vacation provides a welcome distraction from chemotherapy treatments, said his mom, Mandy Piglowski.

“It’s something to look forward to when he’s going through all this,” she said. “When he starts to get upset, we just start talking about Disney.”

Almost half of the kids who choose Make-A-Wish trips go to Disney, Wilcox said. Often, children ask to meet a Disney princess or fight a Jedi knight or do some other special activity while they are there.

The campaign has reached its $1 million mark, but Disney still encourages people to share their photos through March 14 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #shareyourears.
