Make-A-Wish is giving Moira Flaherty her wish, a weeklong trip to Hawaii with her family. Moira's battling a type of Leukemia.

Moira's friends say she's the inspiration. At a recent school carnival they raised money at a lemonade stand and today handed a check over to Make-A-Wish for more than 700 dollars.

She's the second person in under a year from Clara Barton-Hawthorne to receive a wish from the foundation.
