Kentucky teen gets chance to see the Final Four

Lucas Cannon is just like many teens across Kentucky when he says he bleeds blue. However, Cannon had his pelvis crushed and lost his leg after a tractor ran him over roughly two-and-a-half years ago. The 19-year-old remembers only parts of the accident, but he can never forget the odds the doctors gave him: a one to two percent chance of living. Now, he's overcome that odds and says he's making the most of it, living his life to the fullest.

Now, he's even going from nearly losing his life to the trip of a lifetime. Cannon was selected several weeks ago to go to the Final Four, a dream that was made a realty by the Dream Factory in Lexington. The teen admitted that he was nervous watching each UK tournament game, hoping the Cats would make the trip with him, adding that he would not wear red for Louisville.
