Seven Year Old Gets His Wish

A seven year old Saranac Lake boy who suffered from cancer and the side affects of chemotherapy treatments got his see the big green and yellow John Deere Tractors in Moline, Illinois. The Press Republican reports that the trip was made possible through the Make A Wish Foundation of North East new York. Dylan Monty beat his leukemia after four years of treatment, and got to see the tractors he'd admired for about that long too. His wish was granted July 12, and began when a limo filled with toys, balloons and goodies backed into their Saranac driveway. The downside was that Dylan and his family had to wait for the tractor maker to get past company cutbacks, so they waited and in July of this year, Dylan got to see his favorite mode of transportation in John Deere Green.
