FRANKLIN -- Tina Scharf was never supposed to make it to age 12, much less 41.
Diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor at age six, she survived seven surgeries and exhausting procedures and treatment.
At age 11, she became the first person in Wisconsin to be granted a wish by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. She chose to meet Michael Jackson.
Scharf died Friday when she was hit by a car while out riding her bike.
