HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A 4-year-old Hattiesburg girl who's battling cancer will soon make a dream trip to Disney World, thanks to a Hub City company and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.   

Jalaysia Rupert and her family will be heading to Orlando in January for a week's stay at the theme park.  

Juvo Technologies raised the money for the trip through a company weight loss program that donated a dollar for every pound that was lost. 

The company made the surprise announcement to Jalaysia during an office Christmas Party Thursday night at the Southern Miss football stadium.
