OCEANSIDE: Mom with cancer gets wish: a trip to Disneyland with kids

Nearing the end of her life, Julie Beck has a simple wish: for her three children to have a fun-filled weekend at Disneyland without having to worry about her worsening cancer.

Volunteers with Genentech, a drug company that has teamed up with the nonprofit group, came to her house Wednesday afternoon with a gift package that included a hotel room for four nights and tickets for two days at Disneyland and one day at Universal Studios.
