Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and The Weather Channel, 11 year-old Ryland Mishura's dream has come true. The boy from New Jersey has a metabolic disorder with life-threatening complications, so he was granted his wish: to help deliver the weather on live TV.

The fifth-grader was on an 11 a.m. Weather Channel segment on April 12. He also had a tour of the Weather Channel studio and met his on-screen heroes. "I've very interested in the weather, and it really inspires me," Mishura said. He said the studio tour was really exciting, "It was like a dream because I never saw it before and it looked so unreal."
