*** UPDATE *** Because of high winds, Ashley's ride has been rescheduled for Wednesday 3/13/2013. Original article below.

Heli Aviation and the The Children's Dream Fund (CDF) will be fulfilling the wish for ailing teen at Sarasota-Bradenton Intl Airport today. 

17 year old Ashley Krueger is battling a life threatening condition. She has been a student at the Sarasota Military Academy, and while attending this school, Ashley had been a member of the elite Raiders Team.

When the CDF learned of her wish, they contacted Jim London. Jim happened to know this girl via the Raiders and has graciously offered to pay for this flight out of his own pocket.

The flight is planned for This Sunday at 1:30 pm at Heli Aviation which is at the SRQ Airport. Ashley will be in the larger 4 seat helicopter assisted by her family and possibly medical personnel. Flying with Jim in a separate helicopter to do an air to air picture and possibly video will be Troy Morgan of Photos From The Air.

We highlighted Ashley's struggle in an earlier article as well: http://www.mysuncoast.com/news/local/sarasota-military-academy-student-battles-cancer-a-second-time/article_f8e144bc-1ee5-11e2-8351-001a4bcf6878.html
