HORIZON CITY, Texas – The Make-A-Wish Foundation and some Borderland businesses and organizations came together to make sure a courageous 11-year-old boy had a very happy birthday.

Brayam Elias of Horizon City has been battling cancer. Saturday, the Make-A-Wish Foundation showed up for a surprise, socially distant birthday celebration for Brayam.
