CLEMENTON, N.J. -

A dream came true for a local boy, thanks to the love and support of people in his community.

Ten-year-old Marcus has Bardet-Biedl Syndrome and is expected to be blind by the age of 13.

It was Marcus' dream to go to Disney World and Legoland in Florida, and with the help of donors, Marcus found out on the night of March 28th that his dream was going to come true.

The Sunshine Foundation, along with community sponsors, gave Marcus the news at the Friendly's in Clementon.

Marcus will be making his Dreams Come True Trip in April.
