BIRMINGHAM - AL -

He's nine years young and has many hobbies, according to his father, James Bradley.

"Anything outdoors," James Bradley, said. "Anything to do with equipment and anything to do with airplanes."

But for Braxton Bradley one hobby stands out.

"Legos," Bradley said. "[Braxton] has a fit with Legos."

He enjoys Lego, which are the building blocks of imagination.

Friday, as part of National Believe Day, Bradley was granted his wish by Make-A-Wish to go to Legoland in Orlando, Fla. just after Christmas.

When he was four-years-old, Bradley, from Enterprise, Alabama was diagnosed with Duchenne's MD, which is a genetic disorder that deteriorates the muscles.

"You want to comfort him and take care of him when he trips and falls," James said. "But, then you don't want to mess up his self-esteem."

It's a struggle, no doubt, but Bradley says the family has adapted very well.

"Yes, I've accepted it," James said. "But, I don't give up."

Bradley says he's very appreciative for Make-A-Wish and Macy's, for making the wish of a lifetime come true.

"It's phenomenal," Bradley said. "It's amazing."

Bradley says the life expectancy for his son is 19-21 years.
