Fishing at the lake is a pastime many area residents likely take for granted. But, for one little boy, fishing at the cabin is both a wish come true and a family tradition.
Dylan Files, 5, the son of Dana and Sarah Files, is from Ojai, Calif., and he spent last week fishing at his relatives’ cabin on Whitefish Lake, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
When Dylan was 16 months old, he was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor, which is a type of kidney cancer that develops in utero.
“It’s a little plant that grows in your stomach,” Dylan explained.
