13 Year Old's Wish Granted

  A thousand dollars, and five days at the largest shopping mall in the country. It's a wish a lot of girls might make, and it's being granted to one little East Texas girl.

  Tonight, Chili's and the Make A Wish Foundation hosted a bon voyage party for 13 year old Rebecca Hoffman and her family. In a few days, they'll be heading to the Mall Of Americas for five days of shopping fun. Rebecca has ALL Leukemia, and recently underwent a bone marrow transplant. Says she is doing well, and can't wait to knock out her shopping list.

  "A digital camera, a bike, and and I-Pod, major things like that, then the rest is clothes," said Rebecca.

  Rebecca said she couldn't decide between a trip to an amusement park or a shopping trip. The folks at Make A Wish thought the Mall Of Americas would be perfect, because it has a roller coaster.
