COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Heritage Academy seniors helped grant Ethan Marsh’s wish on Thursday after raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Marsh is a first grader at New Hope Elementary who suffers from congenital heart disease and he was surprised by Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald.
Seniors at Heritage Academy raised money for their senior project to give to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make Ethan’s wish come true.
"He's overly excited, so excited that we had to put earphones on him because he gets so excited. It just makes us feel overwhelmed with a sense of thankfulness really,” said Ethan’s father, Chris Marsh.
The school also honored Elizabeth King who had her wish granted with a trip to Disney World. King will be officially cancer-free on October 7.
