GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Several family and friends gathered for the Make-A-Wish reveal for Trae Patterson at Back Bay restaurant in Gulfport on Sunday.

The restaurant staff came in early to help Make-A-Wish organizers decorate for Patterson. The 17-year-old will be going on a full paid trip to Disney World with his family thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The teen has cerebral palsy and deteriorating lungs. Trae's mother said having his wish granted takes away several of she and her families worries. She said Trae looks forward to more than just the rides.

"Really most of the time he likes to do the lights and the singing. He loves loud noises so a lot of the shows. We do more shows than actually doing rides with him," Trae's mother Jill Bosarge said.
