LUBBOCK, TXCheyenne, 8, suffers from a life-threatening genetic disease.

It’s one that has no cure.

“The most difficult part is just all the medications that she’s on and seeing her go through everything that she’s had to go through,” Cheyenne’s dad, Vance, said.

Cheyenne was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was three months old.

“At least twice a year, (she’s) in the hospital for two weeks at a time.”

It was during one of those doctor’s visits, Vance said, that Make-A-Wish was mentioned.

Cheyenne wished to go to Disney World and in July, Make-A-Wish sent her.

It costs, on average, about $8,000 to grant one wish.

If you’d like to donate or volunteer, call Make-A-Wish at (806) 785-9474.
