Ashley learned that her wish was coming true on Sept. 26 at Birdies, Bogeys and Bones golf tournament, Davis said.


The tournament was held at Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin and was sponsored by Famous Daves restaurant. At the tournament, Ashley was taken by Famous Daves in a helicopter for the ceremonial golf ball drop.


She shared her story and struggles in her fight against breast cancer with the tournaments players and sponsors. To Ashleys surprise, her friends and family were there to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation announce that her wish to go to Disney World would be coming true.


Her mom, step-dad and younger brother are all going with her, Davis said.


According to their mission statement, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience and forget about their long journey of illness through having their wish granted.


In September, Ashley participated in Sherrys Run for the second year, forming her own team in 2011 to support those with breast cancer, and posting the seventh-fastest time for women in her age group that year. In 2012, Ashley walked the course with her teammates, friends and family.
