QUISPAMSIS - Screams of joy were all that could be heard from Laura Dickson, a 17-year-old Kennebecasis Valley High School student living with cerebral palsy, on the evening she was presented with not one dream, but two: To go to Disney World in Orlando, Fla., and ride on the back of a motorcycle.

Laura's dream was provided by the Sunshine Foundation, a charity organization that provides "dreams" for children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. Eighty per cent of the dreams the foundation provides are for people with severe disabilities.

Laura's mother, Barb, applied to the Sunshine Foundation for Laura's trip in March 2008. Laura received a call about a month ago, notifying the family of her trip.

Laura's mom, dad and sister will be accompanying her to Disney World, where they will be staying at the Pop Century Disney resort.
