Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After spending their young lives battling the same life threatening disease, an Argusville brother and sister's dreams are coming true.
Addy and Clay Fell both attend Northern Cass School. Their last day of classes today brought the ultimate surprise.
Addy Fell, Make-A-Wish Recipient: "I couldn't believe it'd happen."
11-year-old Addy and her 8-year-old brother Clay have a bond most siblings can't even imagine, only made stronger by their shared battle with muscular dystrophy and their dream of being able to do the same things as their Northern Cass classmates.
Addy: "I thought I was just a regular girl who was in a wheelchair."
What started as an end of the year awards ceremony turned into the day they've been waiting for all the lives.
Make-A-Wish North Dakota showed up to surprise Addy with a trip to Disney World.
Addy: "When they were hugging me I felt really special inside and I never felt that way before."
And a limo ride for Clay, taking him to get the latest in gaming technology.
Bailey Beauclair, Make-A-Wish North Dakota: "Be able to help them make their wish come true, it's really an awesome experience."
Becky Fell, Mother: “It's been amazing because my kids seem to think that they can't have the same kinds of futures other kids have, but in essence, Make-A-Wish is allowing them to see that they can."
Surrounded by classmates, cheering them on and lifting their spirits high.
Bruce Fell, Father: "It's humbling. There's no words to describe it."
And wishes Clay and Addy have forever dreamed about, finally coming true.”
Clay Fell, Make-A-Wish Recipient: "I want to say thank you, very much"
Addy: "I kind of, owe them for the rest of my life because this is amazing, honestly. It's the best thing that's ever happened to me so far."
Addy says the trip to Florida will be her very first vacation.
