A Tulsa child battling a heart condition thought he was leaving Miller Swim School with a graduation certificate, but left with a bigger surprise instead.

Five-year-old Kenton Grego's parents say he was born with only half of his heart.

Before he turned 5, Grego had already undergone three open heart surgeries.

Today, the Grego family found out that Make-A-Wish granted Kenton's wish of visitng Hawaii.

"It means a lot," Tina Grego said. "It's going to be great to take him and he's gonna be just like any other kid."
