Sick Boy Gets Wish With Trip To Orlando Theme Parks
Roanoke, VA - Five year old Kamden Lockett had a big day Wednesday after Make-a-Wish Greater Virginia helped make his dream come true. They teamed up with nTelos Wireless to send Kamden and his family to theme parks in Orlando, Florida. At just 18-months old, Kamden had to get a liver transplant -- which has made his life a struggle. The family will head to Florida next Wednesday. The young survivor also got plenty of gifts to help pass the time during the flight. "He doesn't know everything Disney World has to offer. We've been keeping it a surprise so once we get there and he sees everything I think he is going to be so excited,"said Kamden's mother, Karmon Phillips.The trip came from the "Adopt-a-Wish" program which allows people, groups or businesses to sponsor a wish that also has meaning to them.
