Class Helps Boy Ride Unicorn Before Brain Surgery

Five-year-old has wish fulfilled by friends

Preparing for brain surgery would be terrifying for anyone, let alone a five-year-old child. That's why this story about five-year-old Wyatt Haas of Montana is especially heartwarming. He wanted to ride a unicorn as his dream, and his classmates' parents helped to make it happen before he went to St. Jude's for surgery. 

One of the mothers of the children in Wyatt's class organized the event, where a white pony, complete with rainbow dots and stripes painted on with chalk and a silver horn attached to its head, gave each child a ride. The pony was owned by another mother in the class.
