HEALTH: Make-a-Wish Foundation fulfills 8 year olds dream of flying like Iron Man

NEBRASKA  --  An eight-year-old Nebraska boy battling a rare disease dreams of flying like his favorite superhero, Iron Man.
   
And for one shining moment, that dream came true.
Meet Max.
He has a rare genetic form of Muscular Dystrophy that is slowly robbing his muscles of their abilities.
   
Doctors say he will likely be in a wheelchair by age nine.
But not before living out his dream.   
   
Thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation Max got to suit up and fly in an indoor skydiving facility in Colorado.   http://weartv.com/health/features/health-watch/#.U07lBVGmFI0
