READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Dreams came true for the family of a cancer fighter in Wilmington today.

The patient, who is battling breast, bone, brain, and intestinal cancer could not make it because she was feeling too ill.

A man dressed as genie instead surprised her children with a day full of excitement including a helicopter ride, lunch, and a spa experience.

A good friend says the family deserves it.

"She is going to be ecstatic, and she is going to be mad that she is not here, because she would absolutely love this," Claudia Eastmond said. "She would love being able to get into that car and spend the day with her kids. Knowing her, if we had told her what was actually happening, she would have pushed to come here, and her health really has to come first at this point."

Eastmond and other friends hope the family will now have a few good memories of christmas.
