ALBERTVILLE, Ala. - A young girl in Albertville who suffers from a rare disease enjoyed a day full of magic and hope Saturday.

Princesses and other Disney characters took to the stage at the Albertville City Schools Fine Arts Building, to be a part of a surprise for the littlest princess of all, and to grant her with a once in a lifetime wish.

4-Year-Old Kamryn has Niemann-Pick disease, which her mother Kayla Miller describes as being a lysosomal storage disorder. Miller says it's genetic, and it's very rare, and currently has no known cure.

4 year old kamryn and her family were surprised by the Magic Moments Organization, with an all expense paid trip to Disney World. Magic Moments is a non-profit which aims to create magic moments in the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions in Alabama.

Magic Maker Randy Posey says it's nice to give the children a positive distraction from their illness.

"Just to take a moment out of their life, where they can just be a kid and enjoy themselves, and just make some wonderful memories as a family," says Posey.

Kamryn's family and teachers describe her as being a vibrant, happy child.

"I couldn't think of a person who deserved it any more than she did. Just because of the kind of kid that she is. She perseveres, she never gives up, she spreads love and joy, and she and her family are both deserving," says Albertville City Schools Coordinator of Community Education Rhonda Springfield.

Many people came together to make the special day happen, and Kamryn's reaction made it all worth it.

"You could just see the expression on her face. Just the glow that she brings in a room, it was actually even brighter whenever she found out. And I think she's going to be pretty excited to find out that we're once we get there and all that other stuff, I think it'll be a once in a lifetime experience for her, and especially me and her mother," says Kamryn's father Will Brumbeloe.

"I could not be more honored that she has been chosen to have her wish granted. It's so hard to explain that feeling, because I feel like she deserves the world." Adds Miller.
