4-Year-Old With Cancer Has Dream Fulfilled by Garbage Truck Drivers

Four-years-old Jameson Reeder from Yukon, Okla., is recovering from brain cancer. Recently, two garbage truck drivers fulfilled his greatest wish in a very touching way.

Jameson has been undergoing chemotherapy treatment for the past 18 months after surgery to remove a benign tumor the size of a lemon in his brain, according to KFOR.

This brave little boy has always loved dinosaurs and garbage trucks.

“Every single Thursday when he starts hearing [the trucks] outside, he’s like, ‘Mom, come on, let’s go!'” said Jameson’s mom, Samantha.

When Jameson waved to a trash truck from the driveway one day, two Yukon Waste Management employees, Andrew Huff and Riquo Smart, stopped the truck. They gave him a tour of the trash truck and showed him how they smashed the recyclables in the back.

They had no idea about Jameson’s cancer or that it was his lifelong dream to see the inside of a garbage truck.

“My dream come true,” said Jameson.

“It was just something that, they had no idea the impact they would have on us, and it was really touching,” said Samantha.

Afterwards, Jameson’s mom nominated Smart and Huff for a $400 Pay It 4Ward award from First Fidelity Bank, and they were chosen for the award.

The family invited the two men back to the house, and Samantha handed $200 to each of the men in person.

“I nominated you guys because it made our day. It was something you didn’t have to do, and it means so much whenever people are generous by the kindness of their hearts,” she said.
