US (WI): Make-a-Wish recipient's greenhouse roof collapse

It all started with a "wish" by then 9-year-old Lucas West of Turtle Lake who, in 2008, was diagnosed with bone cancer.

The young horticulturist was given his first greenhouse, which kick started his business, “Growing Wishes.”

More than a decade later, a severe season of winter weather is placing a heartbreaking setback on the now 19-year-old cancer survivor's business.

Heavy snow and rain caused the two greenhouses purchased just last year for retail space to collapse, just a month from opening day on April 27.

Refusing to give up on his dream that started with a wish, the 19-year-old certainly isn't giving up.

He and his family are planning a rebuild and raising money for replacements. A GoFundMe page has been set up for the cause.
