Email

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A Fargo boy is getting his wish - not a trip to Disney World or Hawaii, but a fishing adventure in Alaska.

Friends and supporters surprised 11-year-old Jordan Peterson in Scheels' Fishing Department to announce his Make-A-Wish trip.

Jordan has cystic fibrosis, and received a double-lung transplant back in June.

Scheels also presented them with a $200 gift card to buy gear for their Alaskan adventure.

Jordan Peterson/Getting His Wish: "I love fishing. I started fishing since as long as I can remember."

Dan Peterson/Jordan's Dad: "He's been fishing in Minnesota and North Dakota since he was a kid catching walleyes, but he sees these pictures of these big salmon and halibut and he said, 'dad, one day I really want to go and catch a salmon.'"

Jordan's parents say 6-months after his surgery, he's playing hockey and living more like a normal kid.
