(WHDH) – A young Wisconsin boy battling cancer had his dream of becoming a firefighter come true Thursday.

Little Lincoln Schrock, 3, was smiling ear-to-ear on his trip to the fire department.

The young boy was diagnosed with stage four cancer just days after his third birthday.

Love Your Melon, an apparel brand that helps children with cancer, worked with the fire department to make the family’s trip possible.

“It’s just fun watching his face, and his expressions, and how much he’s enjoying it,” one fireman said.

While the visit was only a few hours, the experience will be unforgettable, Lincoln’s family said.

“This is something he’s going to be talking about for years,” Lincoln’s mother said. “Firefighters are his heroes.”
