Baby Survivor's Incredible Birthday at Disneyland

How does a California baby celebrate both her birthday and beating cancer? With a trip to Disneyland, of course!

On her first birthday, Lilly Bumpus — who is now cancer-free after spending most of her life battling Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare bone cancer — and her family got the royal treatment at Disneyland. (Disclosure: Disneyland and Babble share a parent company.)

“Lilly is having the time of her life,” the family posted on the popular Facebook page dedicated to the smiling tot. “We are living a dream, a dream with no cancer!”

Check out pictures from Lilly’s trip below and click here to help the Bumpus family, who are currently staying at a Ronald McDonald house, raise money for a home of their own.
