A little girl wishes to go to Disney World after battling cancer

FORT WRIGHT, KY (FOX19) - It's a dream come true for one special Kentucky girl.

Elizabeth Smith, 7, is on her way to Disney World  through Make a Wish Foundation after fighting a long battle with cancer. She is now cancer free, but she still faces a year of chemo treatments.

"Cancer is a bully and we're not going to let it bully our family," said Tina Smith.

When this brave little girl got the chance to have her wish granted, she didn't think twice.

"I wished because I've never been to Disney, my brothers and sisters have and I just wanted to see the princesses because I love princesses," said Elizabeth.

The community showed their support with quite a send off for the Smith family. Classmates from St. Agnes Elementary School, firefighters, friends and family joined to wish her safe travels.

"She's my inspiration and she deserves me to be strong and that's the reason, I have to be strong for this little girl and everyday she gives our family so much inspiration and she just smiles all day every day," said Tina.

Not only is this Elizabeth's first time to Disney World, it's her first time in an airplane.
