Jeremy Keyser, 10, talks about flying in a Goodyear blimp and also a helicopter


Largo, Florida -- It was a dream-come-true weekend for a 10-year-old from Largo.

Jeremy Keyser, who is battling several illnesses, has always wanted to fly in the Goodyear blimp. Over the weekend, his dream came true.

Jeremy and his family traveled to Pompano Beach for the Goodyear blimp. He met two of the pilots, and then got a close-up look at one of the blimps.

Even better, he got to ride on a blimp and take controls of the huge airship for bit!

But this was only part of his amazing weekend. Jeremy also got to take to the skies riding in a helicopter.

Jeremy's dream of flying in the Goodyear blimp was made possible by the Children's Dream Fund, a local wish granting organization that fulfills the dreams of children with life threatening illnesses living on Florida's west coast. Jeremy is currently fighting hydrocephalus, cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
