Mommy Matters: A Once in a Lifetime Moment
GENOA, Ill. (WICS) —
It was a special once in a lifetime moment for a terminally ill boy from Illinois.
12-year-old frank Carpino was ready to head down the ski slope, an activity he never thought possible.
The Genoa boy is terminally ill due to several tumors and now in hospice care.
He was sad when he missed a recent ski trip with his Boy Scout troop, so the community made this trip a reality.
Nearly 100 people cheered on Frank as he learned to ski.
The nonprofit organization, Adaptive Adventures, made it possible for Frank to ski.
An athlete skied behind Frank as he used his body to steer a special ski.
