GOLDEN TRIANGLE, Miss. (WCBI) â€“ John Corbell has been through a lot during his 16 years of life.
Last year WCBI brought you the story of Johnâ€™s heart transplant.
Not too long after that surgery, he found out that his heart medication had caused him to develop lymphoma.
Recently, John was able to take a break from all of his medical troubles and fulfill a life-long dream of going deep sea fishing with his family.
He said itâ€™s a trip heâ€™ll never forget.
â€śIt was just really cool for Catch A Dream to be doing this for me and all other kids that have problems,â€ť said Corbell. â€śJust let them have a happy day and forget about being sick.â€ť
â€śLiterally the first time in 16 years we got good news without, you know, this is good, but this, this is good. Within the last two weeks, we got a great check up on the heart. Itâ€™s doing great. Now weâ€™re not dealing with cancer anymore, so weâ€™re ready to have a good summer,â€ť said Johnâ€™s mother Sabrina Corbell.
Catch A Dream has been operating for 19 years now and is close to granting 700 trips to children in need.
