Right now there are more than 250 children who have life-threatening medical conditions that are waiting for their wishes to come true.

One Evansville boy can be taken off that list.

That's little Matthew finding out that he gets to go to Disney World.
He's only three years old, but has been dealing with cancer since he was just one year old.

Matthew is in remission, but still has a long journey ahead of him.

His family says he's looking forward to having breakfast with Mickey Mouse and most of all riding on an airplane.
The family will be escorted to the airport in a limo next month and will get to spend a week at Disney World.
