    TULSA, Okla. - The nonprofit Baking Memories 4 Kids surprised a Tulsa boy Tuesday with the trip of a lifetime.

    Anthony Mares, 11, is headed to Orlando for a week with all of its major theme parks on their itinerary.

    Anthony was born with a rare genetic disorder known as Kleefstra. He was born with an extra chromosome which creates a potential risk for heart complications.

    His family learned about their surprise trip at the Panera Bread Cafe in Tulsa on Tuesday morning.

    Baking Memories 4 Kids awards trips to children who suffer from life-threatening or terminal illnesses. The founder of the company is a cancer survivor.
