LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -A 12 year old boy with a rare form of throat cancer and the Masonic Lodge raised money today in hopes of helping sick children's dreams come true.

Jeramiah Green has partnered with Make a Wish. Green's own wish came true 5 years ago when the Masonic Lodge built him a club house. And now, he wants to help other children have the same opportunity he did.

On Saturday, the Masonic Lodge #183 held an all you can eat breakfast at the lodge to support and help Jeramiah. They had a full crowd show up. Jeramiah says he's thankful to be alive and, now help other people.

"I feel amazing, I mean, able to talk to so many people now," said Green. "I just feel like I'm able to do a lot more opportunities than a lot of other kids my age."

Jeramiah is still fighting his battle against cancer, after over 190 surgeries. All of the proceeds from the breakfast will go to Make A Wish, Team Green Racing for a Cure.
