Appleton boy receives musical Christmas light display thanks to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin

APPLETON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Santa arrived early in Appleton to help grant one little boy's wish on Thursday, Dec. 5. Make-A-Wish Wisconsin is marking a milestone while making a holiday dream a reality. 

Benjamin Thompson is 6 years old. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia three years ago.

His wish was to have his very own Christmas light display synchronized to music -- and boy did Make-A-Wish deliver! 

The display took several weeks to set up and required collaboration from nearly ten different companies. 

Benjamin also got to ride in a limo, write a letter to Santa, and go on a shopping spree.
