Clark Pest Control employees spent a month during the holiday season trying to make one little boy's wish come true. The Lodi-based company's employees donated more than $5,000 to send a 3-year-old boy and his family to Walt Disney World Disney this spring.

Reuben Nazareno of Rancho Cordova was diagnosed with leukemia when he was not yet 1 1/2 years old. Nazareno receives monthly and daily treatments of chemotherapy and other medications.

A group of Clark Pest Control employees worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to send Nazareno and his family on a week-long, expense-free trip to Disney World in Orlando, Fla. Nazareno, a Disney fan, was hoping to see dolphins. He will also have the opportunity to meet other children with cancer during the trip.

"We were touched by Reuben's story and are happy that we could do something to help make his dreams come true," said Nicole Keefe, marketing and advertising manager at Clark Pest Control. "Our wish is that this trip gives the Nazareno family memories that will last a lifetime."
