GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Birthdays are a special time in a child's life and they are even more special when shared with family.
Alex King celebrated his 6th birthday Saturday and had one wish: for his grandmother to see him skate at WFMY News 2's Winterfest.
Alex's grandmother, known as Granny Flowers, was diagnosed with breast cancer and is now in remission. When she was initially diagnosed, doctors told her the chances of beating the cancer were slim.
This week at Winterfest was the first time Alex's grandmother had seen him skate. It was a birthday his mother said he will cherish years down the road and a memory his grandmother will never forget.
