Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -4-year-old Jax Hanson loves adventure.

He's about to go on one.

Jax is headed to Disney World, and Lego-land, thanks to Make-A-Wish.

His wish granted today at the Fargo Theater.

Jax was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.

But today, Jax had his name up in lights. And family and friends helped send him off

to Orlando.

Brook Mercer, Jax’s mom: “He really wants to go to Lego-land. I think we're going to do that on this birthday. He turns 5 when we're there.”

Surgery removed about 80 percent Jax's tumor.

He'll have an MRI every three months to see if it's growing. If it does, he'll undergo chemo.

If not, his mom says he'll live a healthy, happy life.
