Nurse Lisa DeAngelo listens to Elise ten Berge's breathing during her princess-themed fifth birthday party in Rockaway Sunday. Elise has Tay Sachs disease, a fatal genetic condition. The fifth birthday is a major milestone for children diagnosed with the disease. "We'll be very thankful if we're sitting here next year for birthday number six," said Elise's mom Laurie. Elise was given one to two years to live when she was diagnosed at age one.
