A Dream Come True For Bullard Elementary Student

It was a dream come true for a Bullard Elementary student today. Jesse Martinez was born with a life threatening illness called Mitochondria-Myopathy.

Now, after being nominated to the "make a wish foundation" she, along with her parents and siblings, are all going to Disney World. To celebrate, the Junior League of Tyler threw a party for Jesse and her class, complete with balloons and her very own Minnie-mouse dress. Her mother, Nancy, says this is a day and a gift they'll never forget.

"We have a large family and we wouldn't be able to afford this on our own. She's just so excited and this really is a wish come true because we would never be able to do this for her," says Nancy.

Jesse and her family will be on their way to Disney World next Friday.
