The Flight of a Lifetime

Sean Anderson loves hospitals, ambulances and helicopters and even though he's spent the last 18 years in and out of medical facilities, he still gets a thrill from visiting them. It's only fitting that AirMed help grant Sean's wish of flying in a helicopter.

Sean was born with muscular dystrophy and is autistic. Tomorrow AirMed and Make a Wish will partner to make the Stansbury Park teen's wish a reality. Sean is currently hooked to a ventilator, but that won't stop him from boarding an AirMed helicopter and taking a ride around the Salt Lake Valley. He will arrive at University of Utah Hospital's helipad greeted by family, friends and hospital staff.

Help us make Sean's day with an all-star welcome at the U.
