Make-A-Wish brings Mikey's dream to him

Mikey Vigil has luekemia, and his wish as told to the officials of the Make-A-Wish Foundation was that he would like to to go to Disneyworld.

So, Mikey and his family will be going to Orlando on Wednesday for seven days.

But he also mentioned that he liked monster trucks, so Jody Scott, the wish granter in southeastern Utah for Make-A-Wish searched and searched and finally found someone who would let Mikey ride in a monster truck.

On Saturday Mikey knew he would be having a party so that the foundation could give his family the money and information on the Disneyworld trip. But what he didn't know was that that monster truck would show up. And when it did a look of disbelief on his face turned into a huge grin.

"He had mentioned it while were were talking about what he wanted and I just couldn't resist looking for one," said Scott as she stood in the hot desert breeze near Pinnacle Peak where the little boys ride would take place. "I called a bunch of people and no one had a truck he could ride in. Then someone called and told me about Jared Hair. When I called him he said he would be happy to come to Carbon County and let Mikey take a ride."

Hair showed up with the machine and his family. The event took place near the muzzleloader shooting range, an unlikely place for a party. It wasn't a small party either. Around 60 people were there for the event and Hair not only took Mikey, but everyone else who wanted a ride too.

"I'm very happy to do it," said the Spanish Fork resident.

And everyone was happy to accept as they rode and ate ice cream that was provided by Stone Cold Creamery.
