From The New York Daily News

It came a week later than planned, but little Jasmina Anema’s wish was finally granted Wednesday.
The leukemia-stricken Manhattan girl met President Obama in the White House – and spent 10 magical minutes with him.
“It was like they were really best buddies,” said Jasmina’s mom, Thea Anema. “It was just how he spoke to her, like a daddy. It was so sweet. He was really relating to her.”
Obama also delighted his little visitor with a couple of gifts – a box of M&Ms emblazoned with his name and the presidential seal and a matching presidential yo-yo.
A still-glowing Jasmina wasn’t in the mood to discuss her surreal encounter last night. But she let her smile do the talking.
