Thirteen-year-old Antonira Howell is struggling with a life-threatening disease and she asked the Make-A-Wish Foundation for a special wish.

Her special wish of visiting Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., was granted Thursday during an event at Windyke Country Club.

FOX13 News anchor Darrell Greene was on hand for the special announcement.

Antonira had no idea that her wish of a lifetime would be granted.

She and her family leave Friday morning for Southern California thanks to all of the donors who made this happen.

THe Make-A-Wish Mid-South Chapter is hoping to grant 225 wishes in 2013.
