ROCKFORD - It's not every day you're treated to a celebratory sendoff at the airport.

But that's what happened to 6-year old Emmerson Fogate of Lena and her family today. Allegiant and the Make-A-Wish foundation are teaming up to send the family to Orlando, Florida.

She plans to go swimming with the dolphins at Universal Studios. Emmerson's mother, Jen Fogate, says this will help her forget her daily struggles.

"Statistically they done studies that these trips you know like improve their quality of life. It improves their attitude towards their treatment. Just give them that drive and that hope to get through."

This is the 67th wish trip Allegian has provided to Make-A-Wish families.
