Pulling planes to grant wishes to Indiana children

Meet Cooper. He's 3 years old and lives in McCordsville. He was diagnosed with Leukemia and went to Disney for his "big wish," which was granted by: Indiana Children's Wish Fund, a local wish-granting organization that grants wishes to Indiana children who suffer from a life-threatening illness.

Today, we get to meet Cooper, his mother Shannon, and Amy Chiappe of Republic Airways. Learn more about an upcoming event that helps benefit kids like Cooper and helps make real wishes, come true.
