An Oklahoma teen is in the fight for his life, but on Sunday he took time out to celebrate it. James Osborne had three wishes, and all of them were granted. The News On 6â€™s Latoya Silmon reports everyone came camera ready with all eyes on this very special 17-year-old boy.
â€œHe's a strong tough kid. He's a very loving kid,â€ said Osborneâ€™s in-law Delona Farrow.
James Osborne has cancer, but he's not letting it define him. The youngest of six children has goals, three of them to be exact, and on Sunday, he got to live out all of them. He rode in a patrol car and flew in a helicopter. He also wanted to fish.
â€œI think any law enforcement officer, that's one reason we get in this business to help people,â€ said Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. Sheridan O'Neal. â€œSometimes you see the other part of it, but when you can do this, it really means a lot.
Osborne's three wishes were granted with the help of an organization called Just Believe Inc.
â€œNo door has been shut,â€ said Delona Farrow. â€œEvery door has been opened with opened arms. Everybody has been willing to do this for him, and it's just been a blessing.â€
And mom, dad and son couldn't be happier.
â€œHe's in awe. I mean he is totally in awe,â€ said Osborneâ€™s mother Lisa Marie Farrow. â€œAll this, we didn't know anything about this until this morning.
It took Just Believe Inc. only a few days to make Osborneâ€™s dreams come true, but when every second counts they had to act fast.
â€œIt's very hard, but this day is for him, and we just want him to have the most special day that he can remember and something that we'll all remember,â€ Delona Farrow said.
Osborne, who is from Rial near Henryetta, was first diagnosed in January. Since March his family tells us his cancer has spread.
