Kid With Heart Defect Blasts Off 'Into Outer Space' In Sweet Video

Make-A-Wish helped this Georgia boy's dream come true.

A 7-year-old in Georgia got the chance to live out his space dreams, with a little help from virtual reality and Make-A-Wish.

Zayden Wright of Augusta was born with congenital heart disease and has had four open-heart surgeries and 38 heart catheterizations in his short life. Throughout every ordeal, Zayden has maintained a cheerful attitude, vivid imagination and enthusiasm for all things outer space.

Make-A-Wish Georgia surprised the little boy with a “trip to space.” The organization partnered with Walk West to make his wish “to go to Saturn in a red rocket ship” possible through VR.
