HOUSTON -

A trip to the Olympics is an amazing experience for anyone, but for one Katy family, their trip to London is part of their summer of celebration.

The Blonder family is celebrating their daughter is beating cancer and getting her dream trip through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

After fighting and praying, the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Jordan Blonder's wish to see the Olympic games in person.

Jordan, 15, is in remission from Hodgkins Lymphoma. She was just 12 when she got sick. After two years of treatment, she's cancer free.

"I've always wanted to go, ever since I first watched the Olympics in 2008," she said.

Jordan's dad, Jonathan, said this is a special trip and a special summer.

"This summer is like our celebration summer. She's finally two years in remission now. She's fully healthy," he said.

The Blonder family returned from London on Monday.

Jordan and her brother, Tyler, both do Tae Kwon Do and are huge fans of the Lopez family.
