LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- A mother and her son will be participating in Scale the Strat together this Sunday.
Christion Johnson's mother has been scaling the Stratosphere for the last five years because he couldn't.
"It feels amazing to know someone's out there scaling the Strat for me, something that most people wouldn't do, most people can't do," he said. "It feel really good to know that she's willing to do that thing for me."
His mother, Heidi Avila, says her son had his first asthma attack when he was just 12 weeks old.
