The Dream Factory helps makes the dreams of children with critical or chronic illnesses come true. On Sunday, a Spencerport teen had his wish granted at Linda's New York Pizzeria on Lyell Avenue.
14-year-old Justin Samis has the blood disorder hemophilia meaning he has to endure regular infusions. His illness also makes him more vulnerable to bumps and bruises. His dream is to visit Walt Disney World and that is now coming true thanks to Dream Factory.
"It's just mind blowing," says Justin. "I didn't think this was ever going to happen. I feel that it's just too good to be true. Overall, I'm so excited, I'm speechless."
"We want to reward your strength," Dream Factory area director Laura Walitsky told Justin. "We want to do something really wonderful for you because you deserve it."
Justin and his whole family will be leaving for Orlando, Florida in one week.
