Western Wishes grants Douglas boy's wish

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Kolton LeClair is like most eight year old boys. The Douglas, WY native is a little shy, but he loves his rodeo. "I like watching it and seeing what happens," said LeClair. He can't pick a favorite event, but one of his favorite rodeo riders is Trevor Brazile. On Sunday, LeClair got to meet Brazile and other rodeo contestants thanks to Western Wishes, a non-profit organization that grants kids and adolescents chances to meet Western heroes like Brazile.

LeClair was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer that affects the muscles with malignant tumors. LeClair was diagnosed in 2011, and relapsed in 2014. In all, he's gone through 80 weeks of chemotherapy and radiation, and 33 proton beam therapies.

None of that was on LeClair's mind Sunday. He sat in the high stands of Chute 9 at Frontier Park, met a rodeo clown, Brazile, and other contestants. He got a special shout out during tie-down roping, and was in the stands to time some events.

And what did LeClair have to say about his big day?

"It was fun."
