LYNBROOK - A Long Island family is trying to make the most of their 9-month-old daughter's short life.

The Linzer family says Quinn suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Neimann-Pick Disease Type A. The disease causes brain and body regression. Doctors told the family that it is unlikely that Quinn will live past her first birthday.

To make the most of her time here, the family has made a to-do list of a lifetime for Quinn. It includes things like going to a New York Mets game, visiting FAO Schwartz and even a trip to Walt Disney World.
