Make a Wish celebration in Muhlenberg Co.

MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) - A special Make a Wish kick off celebration on Wednesday in Muhlenberg County.

The Make a Wish Foundation presented a trip to Washington, D.C. to Tyler Foster and his family.

Tyler, whose bone cancer is in remission, just recently returned to Muhlenberg South Middle School after a year of treatment.

"It reminds me of why we're here and I don't mean to cry.  And I'm so thankful for where we are today and this is just exciting to kinda commemorate, everything. Bring it all together. And the end hopefully of a very difficult year," said Susan Foster, Tyler's mom.

Tyler and his family will leave March 29 for their trip to the nation's capital.
