14-year-old Jesse Glodowski loves spending time outdoors on the water. And thanks to a generous gift, he'll be able to in his very own boat. For months, Jesse has been battling Osteosarcoma-a type of bone cancer. And while it has been difficult, it's getting a little easier thanks to a 16 foot War Eagle boat from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. They're an organization that grants the "wishes" of children with life-threatening medical conditions with something they can look forward to.
