Make A Wish Disney Cruise

A local hospital is making a wish come true for a local family.
EVERETT, BEDFORD COUNTY - A local hospital is making a wish come true for a local family.

A Bedford County boy is battling with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy called Duchennes.  Eventually he won't be able to walk, so UPMC Bedford teamed up with make a wish to send him on a vacation while he and his family can still enjoy it together.

Teagan Imler and his family will be going on a Disney Cruise. It was Teagan's wish, and the employees at the hospital made it happen.

Teagan is almost seven and most people with Duchennes stop walking at 10, around 18 it will start affecting his heart and lungs. Life expectancy is usually in the mid 20's.

Employees at UPMC Bedford raised $4,000 and through the Make a Wish program the Imlers are going on a Disney Cruise.

Crystal Imler called it a bittersweet opportunity because they’re incredibly grateful, but you never want your child to need a wish through make a wish.

The Imlers will take off on their cruise in late January.
