MERRILLVILLE — Make-A-Wish and Macy's helped a six-year-old boy celebrate his wish to be a cowboy at a dude ranch.

Bryce, who is battling congenital heart disease, was surprised Monday with a cowboy-themed experience at the Macy's in the Southlake Mall in Merrillville.

The experience helped spark more excitement for his upcoming wish that has been delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
