FLEMINGTON - A dream of "super" proportions is coming true for a Flemington woman with a potentially fatal illness.

Charlotte Dequina, 20, has a potentially fatal type of cancer that forms on the brain. She is still undergoing chemo and had to drop out of college last year.

Dequina will get a chance to forget about being sick as she attends the Super Bowl thanks to an organization called the Dream Foundation.

"I was shocked when I received the tickets," she says

Dequina grew up watching the big game at home with her mom, dad and siblings Phillip and Angelica, and always wanted to go in person.

The game is a dream come true for the entire family, who will have a chance to make some memories they can cherish together. They will also be getting a limo ride and money for souvenirs.

"For a little moment they give us an unforgettable experience to share and treasure this memory," says Charlotte's mother, Evelyn Dequina.

Dequina is a Giants fan, but will be rooting for the Broncos on Sunday because they have a Manning on the team.
