The 14-year old is being surprised by a flash mob dance held at Clarke University as part of her Make-A-Wish Foundation reveal.

"I was just shocked.  I knew it was a flash mob right when the music started," said Sarah.

The flash mob dancers included people from the Dubuque community, cheerleaders from Senior High School and some of Sarah's classmates from Washington Middle School.

"It actually felt really great, because it helped me understand that I was doing it for a good cause and I was doing it for one of my classmates to help her have a good time," said Sarah's classmate Sadie Cook.

The good times aren't over yet -- as part of Sarah's wish, she's going to Disney World for Christmas along with her family.
