Organization makes a wish come true for a 5-year-old boy

WASHINGTON, N.C. (WNCT) – A 5-year-old boy with heart disease is heading to Disney World and Legoland.

Make-A-Wish in Eastern North Carolina is helping the family have a little fun in Florida. Sunday, Lonnie and his family celebrated his wish and his upcoming 6th birthday at McDonald’s in Washington. Lonnie’s mother says it brings tears to her eyes seeing how happy her son is.

“I’m overjoyed. I’m emotional. This is a lot to soak in,” said Twanicka Corey.

Lonnie and his family will head to Florida next week.
