Terminally ill Vietnam veteran gets wish granted for his final Christmas

A Vietnam veteran in Florida whose cancer treatments make his body feel like it’s burning got his Christmas wish fulfilled: a winter wonderland delivered to him to make snow angels.

Doctors told Albert Septien, diagnosed with stage four melanoma, that this would be his last Christmas, according to Fox 35 Orlando.

“This year has been hell because I have never been sick in my life and now here I am,” Septien, who may have been exposed to Agent Orange during his service, told the TV station.

Crews brought hundreds of bags of ice and sprayed it on the ground to make snow for Septien.
