Boy With Terminal Cancer Gets Last Wish

Posted: Updated:

Ethen Richardson was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in July. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is sending his entire family to New York City to ring in the New Year.

Ethen's parents say that their son has always dreamed about going to New York City, a place that he says is bigger than the moon.

"So, when he went to proclaim his love to us he would always say, ‘momma, daddy, I love you bigger than New York City,' so that's where we're going," mom Brandy Richardson said.

Despite going through treatment, Ethen has never complained and always has a smile on his face. His parents are impressed and inspired by his spirit.

"This past July he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and he's been a champ the whole time," said Brandy.

And boy is Ethen excited about NYC, a city he will see for the first and very likely the last time.

"I heard they have some pretty famous pizza there," he said.

The Richardson family will also make a national TV appearance. They've been selected as special guests for a New Year's Eve special right here on FOX.
