World Wish Day: Dream come true for 5-year-old battling cancer

Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic celebrated World Wish Day by granting a special wish to a special kid - Sammy!

The brave 5-year-old is fighting leukemia and has one wish - a trip to Universal Studios to see his favorite superheroes and dinosaurs.

Mom says Sammy is doing fantastic now but the journey has been tough. The young man spent years in the hospital during his fight with cancer. Now that he's out - he is loving life! Mom says he absolutely loves school and sports and couldn't wait for this day to come.

In 1980, the very first Make A Wish 'wish' was granted - and every year the organization celebrates by making another child's dream come true.
