Newport, Maine (CNN) -- By the end of February, many who live in New England are sick of winter weather, but for one 6-year-old girl the snow is a wish come true.
Sophia Galvan is from outside of Orlando, Florida and before now, she had
only seen snow on TV.
"She sees snow all the time and she likes cartoons with snow and
snowmen and stuff like that," says her father Victor Galvan.
So when she had the opportunity to have a wish granted by the Make-a-Wish Foundation, she only wanted one thing: to go somewhere where it snows and build
Her family flew from Florida to Maine and the snow welcomed them here.
"She was waving at the snow and stuff like that and she wanted -- when we went to the hotel -- she wanted to go out, and we weren't ready," says Victor. "We said,
'No, no, let's hold on, let's hold on!'"
There's a lot more than just snowman building planned for little Sophia's
wish, including a trip to Burgess Farm in Newport. The farm built several snow sculptures before Sophia's arrival and planned
time for a sleigh ride, sledding, and a hot chocolate tea party to warm up.
Sophia has a form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma, but she's in remission
now. She's able to play, laugh and enjoy her wish.
"It's great to see through a kid's eyes the snow again," says Brenda Gammon of Burgess Farm. "You remember
memories of when you were a child and how magical snow seems."
Sophia's family knows this memory is one to treasure.
"[The cancer] can come back, but we gotta be ready and we pray every day that God
never will take her away," says Victor.
And their wish is to just to have more happy times as a family like this.
