- Most kids dream of going to Disneyland, but one Phoenix pre-school surprised a special little girl with that very trip she has always wanted to go on. It was all part of the Make A Wish Arizona Foundation.

Lily was surprised with the trip that she has always dreamed of. "So you guys are all gonna get to go to Disneyworld in April," said Jennifer Puma.

She looks like any other 4-year-old, the tiny princess has been battling a brain tumor since she was 7-months-old.

"She does have some serious health issues, but honestly, you would never know it unless her mom told you. She is spunky, she is fun, and she is adorable," said Puma.

Her family and friends say her illness hasn't stopped her from enjoying life as a mini princess.

"She's done a lot, she's very happy, she's very social, one of her favorite things is being around her friends, that is important to her," said Heather Lewis.

The fight for Lily and her family continues, so does the fun thanks to Make A Wish Arizona, Benchmark Pre-School, and their North Phoenix community.

"I'm friends with Heather Lewis, and my daughter loves Lily, and it really means a lot to be a part of it because they're just such a special family, they way they hold themselves together, they're really an inspiration at the school," said Jennifer.

Lily and her family will get to go to Disney World for a whole week in April.
