When it comes to making magic, it wouldn't be complete without a unicorn.

And for kindergartner Wyatt Haas of Terry, Montana, his encounter with a unicorn might help give him the extra push he needs as he embarks on one of his biggest battles to date.

The 5-year-old was recently diagnosed with brain cancer and was accepted into St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

Wyatt and his mom Corissa left Sunday so he could begin treatment.

But his send off was something straight out of a fairy tale.

Bonanza the unicorn proudly carried Wyatt, complete with crown, around the park as his classmates and teacher looked on.

Wyatt's dad, Zach, and his two siblings are staying behind in Montana so Zach can continue working at BNSF.

But the family's wish is that everyone can be reunited down in Memphis for Christmas.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family with certain costs while Zach stays home with the other siblings. St. Jude's covers costs associated with treatment and family travel.
