LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Simmons Bank has partnered with Make-A-Wish Mid-South to surprise a six-year-old by granting his wish to go to Disney World.

Harper's parents made him think they were just running errands in downtown Little Rock on Wednesday.  His parents brought him into a character-inspired party in the Simmons Bank lobby where he learned he was going to get to go to Disney World.

"It's the icing on the cake. It is the final, last page of three and a half years of treatments and doctor's visits and prescriptions and needles, so this is our party," said Krystal Marsh, Harper's mom.

The trip is planned for June.

"This is their first family vacation since Harper has been diagnosed," said Chris Davis, a volunteer with Make-A-Wish.

Simmons Bank has recently launched a new campaign called Dreams: Realized.

“Our new Dreams: Realized campaign taps into the fact that as bankers, Simmons associates are in a unique position to help people realize dreams through all stages of life, from opening their first savings account and buying their first home to retiring and securing their legacy,” said Elizabeth Machen, senior vice president of marketing and communications, in a released statement. “It’s not every day we get to fulfill someone’s dream of going to Disney World, but we are thrilled to help send Harper and his family through our support of Make-A-Wish.”
