EAGLE RIVER - It's not every day a wish comes true, but for one Eagle River boy, it did.
On Wednesday, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin granted 16-year-old Noah Jensen his wish.
Jensen will get to go to Utah to meet his birth family for the first time. Jensen is adopted and has never met his birth family.
The Make-A-Wish foundation planned a trip for Jensen to meet his family. The foundation rented a van because Jensen can't fly for medical reasons. His mother will drive and his brother will come along for the trip as well.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfills the requests of children with severe medical conditions.
"Noah has multiple diagnoses, he's severely multiply disabled, not just one thing," said Noah Jensen's mother, Debbie Jensen. "He has spina bifida as his major disability you might say. But he also has Arnold Chiari malformation where the brain is actually down inside the spinal column. And he has seizures...I could go through a long time and list all the things that he has that are real major issues."
Jensen likes to sing, so he will sing karaoke with his family in Utah. The family leaves on September 23.
"He is a unique man in that he has a way of showing everybody love, and that is his gift," said Debbie Jensen.
