North Dakota Make a wish has been making wishes come true since 1985. Yesterday morning, they made another family's dream come true.

Connor, an 11-year-old boy from Rugby, spent close to 15 hours in surgery for a pancreatic transplant.

That's when Make a wish North Dakota reached out to send the Klein family to a Disney Cruise Line voyage. The Klein's say they can't thank the Make A Wish Foundation enough for getting their family away from the constant burden of hospitals.

"Make a wish is a phenomenal organization that has really gone above and beyond to help this brave young man. He went through a lot and it's just refreshing that we're not going to be spending our time in a hospital somewhere," says Erin Klein, Connor's Mother.

Connor and his family left yesterday morning for Orlando and will come back the Peace Garden state on Friday.
