Wishes in Flight: Emmett Zorr

Emmett Zorr can't stop talking about his family trip to Disney, Sea World and Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

"It was great. We would never have been able to afford that. We've had medical bills since he was born. There's no way we could have done a trip like that," his dad Chad said.

Emmett has been through a lot. He's been diagnosed with cancer twice, something that delayed his wish.

"We had the trip planned out for 2016, and then that's when the cancer came back. We were a week before our trip, and we had to cancel our trip or postpone it. We went through all his treatments. We wanted him to be healthy, be able to enjoy the trip," his mom Tina said.

It hasn't been an easy road. Emmett was born 4 1/2 months early 6 years ago. He weighed just over a pound, being premature was problematic. One emergency room visit in that first year, was one his parents will never forget.

"At that point his lungs had shut down, and they told us to get our affairs in order, so we had to get with the funeral home and start planning a funeral. When they let go, he was supposed to pass on. Instead he took a big gulp of air, and he's still here," Chad said.

Today he is spunky, talkative and doing well.

"Everyday he gets up and takes a breath, it's just another victory for him. His world is much different than ours, but he is learning to adapt," Chad said.

He's a true miracle baby who has dealed with a cancerous tumor, chemo and radiation. A trip from Make-A-Wish South Dakota gave a bit of relief from it all.

"We can't thank Make-A-Wish enough," Chad said.
