(KHNL) - After two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy, Sarah Garlands' condition has improved. To celebrate, she and her family will head to the happiest place on earth to make Sarah's ultimate wish, a reality.

It's all that has been on the spunky 4year-olds mind for the last five months, a trip to Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida to celebrate her health.

"Especially for the last two weeks, she has been out of control, ready to go," said Sarah's' Father Brian Garland.

A grant, to Make a Wish Foundation Hawaii, from "Jewelers for Children" makes it all possible. At a make believe tea party, Jennifer Deems asked Sarah to draw out some of her wishes.

"She drew the "Little Mermaid," she drew "Cindrella," she drew "Snow White," in her own little way of course for a 4-year-old. But it was precious and it melted my heart," said Jennifer Deems of Make A Wish Foundation Hawaii.

The first few years might have been rough, but there are still plenty of years to fill with fond memories, beginning with this trip.

"I believe your first memories start when you're about four, since she's four now, I hope this is her first memory that she has, not all the yucky things she's had to go through," said Sarah's' mother Cindy Garland.

The magical wish will continue when her entire family flies out to Florida Thursday night. Sarah will be traveling with her parents Brian and Cindy, and her two sisters Payton and Emily.

"Jewelers for Children" who's mission is to raise funds for children's' charities, has helped grant more than 900 wishes in all 50 states, including five in Hawaii.
