Wish Granted to Local Teen

A young girl who is suffering from a life threatening illness got her wish granted.

15-year-old Zay Zay Clemons of Meridian has several medical conditions that affect her ability to function, mitochondrial disease, a brain tumor and myopathy. She is usually confined to her bed.

But the Make-A-Wish Foundation helped make her life a little better, granting her wish to have her own computer, iPod and camera.

"She's able to sit and listen. And that's what this wish was, to have her own computer, and have her own Gospel music, because she loves Gospel music," said Rachel Jones of Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Make A Wish Foundation grants wishes for children like Zay-Zay, who suffer from serious and life-threatening illnesses.
