"His wish was for an Apple shopping spree and Air Jordan's," said Faith Hacker, senior development officer of Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.

Kaleb Maggard, who is 15, was diagnosed with stage 3 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

"When they said cancer, it was devastating. Your whole world stops completely," said Jessica Williamson, his mother.

A limo picked up Kaleb and his family from their home in Hazard for the shopping trip at the Fayette Mall. Then, Kaleb was able to pick out some of those items he wanted.

Kaleb is coming up on one year of being cancer free.
