Girl, 7, Gets Trip of Lifetime to Disney World Thanks to Make A Wish

A local 7-year old got the trip of a lifetime thanks to the Make A Wish Foundation.
 
Mekyla Smith suffers from one of the worst kinds of brain damage (epilepsy), chronic lung disease, quarter blindness, and has cerebral palsy. Her grandmother, Stephanie Payne, is the girl's primary caregiver at their home in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Carthage.
 
Thanks to the help of a social worker at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, Mekyla, her sisters, and Stepahnie, 52,  went to Disney World, an opportunity bestowed upon terminally ill children.
 
The family shared some images from the trip with The River City News.
