Cris Judd Helps Youngster Realise Dancing Dreams

JENNIFER LOPEZ's ex-husband CRIS JUDD is helping a helping an ill young girl realise her dreams of becoming a dancer.

Choreographer Judd became friends with four-year-old DAISY, a survivor of rare kidney cancer Wilms Tumour, after he donated his winnings of $250,000 (GBP156,250) from reality show I'M A CELEBRITY, GET ME OUT OF HERE! to the MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION.

He explains, "Make-a-wish invited me out to Arizona and they presented me with an award for being one of the largest individual donors for the year for their foundation.

"So they dedicated a wish in my name to a little girl. Her name's Daisy. Her wish is to become a SUGAR PLUM FAIRY in the NUTCRACKER. She's four years old and I got a chance to meet her and we danced around in the dance studio.

"She was all about wanting to play around and her into her own thing, so I just kinda fun dancing around her and stuff. She's precious."

After learning her steps from generous Judd, Daisy is now looking forward to making a trip to New York where she'll attend the opening of the Nutcracker on Broadway.

The little girl's mother JACLYN says, "There are so many children that want to be dancers. Cris is making that dream come true. That's what she thinks about almost every day. She wants to be a little dancer."
