GREENWOOD, Ark. (KFSM) — A six-year-old girl in Greenwood is being granted a wish, and it’s all because of Make-A-Wish and the students at East Hills Middle School.

Julissa Hernandez was surprised with a trip to Walt Disney World.

The students at East Hills have spent the past few months raising money to donate to Make-A-Wish. They told her today that her dream is now a reality.

Julissa’s mom Maribel says she was overwhelmed with the surprise in the best way possible.

“She’s waited for a long time for this, so she was in a long treatment for chemotherapy, so she’s done about a month ago and now she’s excited, but we didn’t tell anything until today, so it’s a special day for her,” she said.

The family wants to thank the students at East Hills Middle School and the Make-A-Wish foundation.
