Meet Make-A-Wish Kid Eli

Meet Make-A-Wish Kid Eli

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - At just 7 years old, Elijah Staten has spent almost half his life fighting for it.

For the last two years Eli has been fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He missed being five years old, that time was spent under the watchful eye of his parents Karen and Steve Staten and the many doctors of Kosair Children's Hospital.

The Staten family tries to smile when they say, "We were probably at Kosair more than we we're home."

Thanks to Make-A-Wish, his family will get a break from their medical routine, but even more important Eli will get his wish this summer.
