Lucas Hembree is a little boy many of you may remember.

We first introduced you to Lucas in February of last year. The six-year-old has Sanfillipo Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

Last summer, thieves stole his family's back-up generator, used to power Lucas' electronic medical equipment, but two Knoxville companies stepped up to help the Hembrees, giving them what they needed and more.

Monday, Lucas had a big wish fulfilled. He had the chance to fly in a helicopter, thanks to a local Air Evac team.

10News Photojournalist Jacob Haskew takes us along for the ride.
