Teacher grants terminally ill student her wish to meet Minnie Mouse

CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WDEF) – Harmony Sain is seven years old and she’s going to Disney World. She’s also terminally ill and is a special needs student of Margaret Barclift.

“I would go to the house twice a week and go through some basic arithmetic and ABCs that kind of stuff and then I just grew to love her.”

Harmony has suffered through 28 surgeries on her head and neck due to her illness and her length of life could be very short and sudden.

Harmony has always had a dream of meeting Minnie Mouse but the cost has been too high. After Make-a-Wish foundation denied harmony’s doctors submission, Barclift started a go fund me, Happiness for Harmony.

Barclift raised enough money to pay for an all-expenses paid 6-day trip to Disney and Harmony’s dream of meeting Minnie will come true on September 27.

“The outrage the support, there are no words just I’m so happy and so pleased and so thankful that everybody is so willing to be so supportive of all of us.”
