Man gets dying wish to see mother

It took a lot of work, but in the end, it paid off with an emotional reunion between a man dying of cancer and his mother from Peru. Elizabeth Prado-Ocejo finally got the chance to see her son, Walter Vergara.

Walter is a terminally ill cancer and aids patient who lives in Corona, Queens.

His dying wish was to see his mother.

The U.S. embassy in Lima however denied her a visa.

But with the help of New York's congressional delegation, Prado-Ocejo was allowed into the country and arrived Saturday night to see her son.
