The Make-A-Wish Foundation is making a local boy's dreams come true.
Nine-year-old Henry is currently battling Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. The Make-A-Wish Foundation will provide Henry an escape from his medical struggles as he comes face-to-face with his heroes.
Henry's wish is to meet the cast of his favorite television show, Animal Planet's Tanked. Tanked is a program that features two Las Vegas businessmen who build wildly imaginative tanks and aquariums. Henry will meet the stars of the program, Wayde King and Brett Raymer, this month.
In celebration of Henry's wish, family members and Make-A-Wish volunteers meet with Henry on Friday at Newport Aquarium.
Henry was given a behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium as a special sendoff party.
Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana fulfilled 865 wishes in the last program year – more wishes than any other chapter in the country.
