When approached by The Make-A-Wish Foundation, both girls chose to visit Disneyland. Violet’s trip was in December 2013. When Juniper got her wish the following October, the organization offered Violet the chance to share the good news with her friend.

In the video below, Violet, dressed as a princess, excitedly breaks the news to Juniper.

Juni, you’re going to Disneyland,” she exclaims. “That’s the best place on Earth, Juni!”

In just a week, the sweet video has received nearly 300,000 views.

“[Juniper] was super excited to see Violet and she knows what Disneyland is, so she got really excited,” Danielle Ouellette, Juniper’s mother, told CNN.

Both girls loved their time at Disneyland and are currently in remission.
