Sick Jericho teen's prom dream comes true

A Jericho teen had his dream come true by attending his senior prom yesterday. 



Nico Vigliotti, 18, suffers from a lung disease so rare that there is only one other known case in the world. 



When Vigliotti was born, doctors told his parents he would not survive. 



Earlier this month, his entire graduating class at Jericho High School asked him to prom. Last night was the big event. 



Vigliotti is expected to graduate with his class on Sunday. His dream is to become a sports commentator.
