Wish come true for boy battling cancer

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -

The red carpet was rolled out this weekend to make a wish come true for a Lehigh County boy battling cancer.

The organization "Friends Are By Your Side" held the red carpet event for Wyatt Newhard at the Carmike Theater in Center Valley Saturday night.

The 9-year-old and 55 of his friends and family members were ushered to the theater in limos for a showing of "The Lego Movie."

Wyatt, of New Tripoli, was diagnosed with high-risk neuro-blastoma cancer when he was just three years-old.

He has undergone many rounds of high-dose chemotherapy, multiple surgeries and MIBG therapy. Wyatt  continues his battle with a new round of treatments that started this month.
