A terminally-ill eight-year-old Perry boy's wish is to spend his birthday at Legoland in Atlanta Friday.

The Byron Convention & Visitors Bureau, Byron Main Street, the Big Peach Antique Mall, and other local community supporters are making that happen.

Davis was born without a pulmonary artery and has 1/3 of a lung. He's had seven surgeries in his lifetime.

The groups are sending the boy and his family to the Lego theme park by limousine, where he will have a birthday party several weeks early. The family will stay overnight in a hotel.

Davis loves Legos, and the eight-year-old says he plays with them everyday.

"I am going to Legoland," said Davis. "Because they look giant. They looked like I built it, and it looks like I have been transformed into the city I made."

And for Cathy Holland, Davis' grandmother, this trip means the world to her, too.

"It's just, to see him so happy for something he's wanted, it's amazing. It touches my heart. It makes my heart feel so good that his heart is exploding right now," said Holland.
