(LUBBOCK, TX) -  A picture, hung on the wall at her doctor's office, was the the inspiration behind one little girl's wish.

"She already knew about Make-A-Wish because she knew Andrew had gone," Cynthia Haynes said.

A little boy, with a heart condition like Haynes' daughter Iva, had taken a trip to Disney World through Make-A-Wish.

"Every time we'd go see Dr. Robinson, there was his picture with Mickey Mouse," Haynes explained.

10-year-old Iva wanted to go too.

"Her wish was to meet Mickey Mouse, like her friend Andrew."

In November 2012, Make-A-Wish made it happen.

"It was the first time as a family we've taken a vacation, so it was the first time for most of us to ride a plane," Haynes said.

Iva, along with her siblings Marti, Ian and Anthony, joined their parents on the trip, where they stopped at each of the Disney parks and Sea World.

"You don't realize exactly how much they give you, until you get a wish. I mean everything, everything's paid for."
