Wish granted for local cancer patient

Chattanooga, Tenn. (WDEF) — A local girl diagnosed with cancer is getting a special wish granted.

Tynece Babbs and her family are going to Orlando, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The seven-year-old will be spending a week visiting all of the theme parks.

Tynece’s mother says the whole family is excited about the trip.

She says Tynece can enjoy herself for a week, and not have to worry about any doctors’ appointments.

“It means a lot to us. It’s something we wouldn’t have been able to do ourselves, so it means a lot to us,” says Chiniqua Babbs, Tynece’s mother.

“This is the fun stuff. Watching them, the joy on their faces as their wish is coming true is just, it’s incredible,” says Abby Carden with Make-A-Wish East Tennessee.

Tynece tells us she looks forward to meeting Minnie Mouse.

She’s also excited about the plane ride, but a little nervous, since it’s her first time flying.
