PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A 6-year-old boy from Port Washington got a special send-off celebration at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport Monday.
Brantley Cram has a rare type of cancer and he wished to go to Disney World.
Make-A-Wish Wisconsin not only granted that wish, but gave him a limo ride to the airport.
He was greeted by airport employees and got a quick check-in, followed by a celebration hosted by the wish sponsor Aerotek.
The send-off meant a lot to those taking care of Brantley.
"He's our only child, and for what he's gone through, he's shown an immense amount of strength that I could never go through," said Amanda Bartels.
As the aircraft taxied to the runway, fire engines sprayed the plane with water as well.
