Guam - 9-year-old Johnsiny Relech's wish was granted today. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Guam granted Relechi's wish of going to Disneyland with her family today at the Takecare Wellness Center. Victor Camacho, Make-A-Wish Executive Director, said, "It's our hope that this is a distraction from their medical illnesses and they forget about being sick and just try to be kids and enjoy life and that's what she's all about."

TakeCare donated $13,500 to fund airfare, accommodations, meals and entry to the Disneyland park. Make-A-Wish has granted over 200 wishes on Guam, with 15 this year alone.
