Terminally ill man was granted one of his lifelong dreams

A terminally-ill Michigan man was granted one of his lifelong dreams in Corbin.

Doctors told Jason Hafelein he only has a few months to live.

His body is rejecting the double lung transplant he got a year ago.

The transplant was supposed to save his life.

He is staying positive about the news.

He was in Corbin, crossing an item off of his "Bucket List"

He got to take a ride in the "General Lee"

“It’s something that I've always wanted to do! It’s kind of amazing I'm about to do it,” Hafelein said.

The 33-year old has a busy itinerary over the next few days.

He will be travelling to Orlando, Florida to meet one of his childhood heroes, Hulk Hogan.
