7-year-old girl with rare disease visits San Diego Zoo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A special little girl crosses off an item on her bucket list at the San Diego Zoo.

Seven-year-old Meisyn Ellison was adopted from China last year and has been diagnosed with a rare and terminal form of muscular dystrophy.

Among the things she wanted to do was travel from her home in Utah to San Diego to see the animals at the zoo. Her wish came true Tuesday and she even got to help feed the elephants.

Meisyn is capturing and saving all her memories on her iPod and her mother is documenting her experiences on a blog. Click here to visit her blog.
