Upstate NY Kid To Be Blessed By Pope
The people from Make-A-Wish were caught off-guard when Landon LaChance of the Albany area made his wish. Instead of hoping for a trip to Disney World, the 11-year-old asked to go to the Vatican to be blessed by the pope.
Landon has a rare genetic disorder that causes his skin to change color. The condition can also cause non-cancerous tumors to form.
While the family was attending mass Sunday at Sacred Heart Church, Landon learned that they will be travelling to the Vatican to meet Pope Francis.
"I want to go see the pope and I want to see if this will help." Landon told Make-A-Wish. The family will fly to Rome within the next 14 days.
