It’s easy to see how much he loves his family, animals, and monster trucks.

And on Sunday, Bradlee not only got see monster trucks.

"I'm going to take a ride," Bradlee said.

Bradlee is currently battling brain cancer.

Just this week, family had reached out on Facebook, hoping to find someone to help fulfill Bradlee’s wish.

Thomas and Don Borders along with their family traveled from Terre Haute Indiana Sunday morning with a mission to put a smile on this 9-year-old’s face.

"We built this truck going on about four years ago, about five years ago lost my son to brain cancer. So we built this truck in memory of him, that's why it is called 100 percent monkey business, he ran power wheels, mud bogs, and his truck was called monkey business."

"And here I got you something else. This is your own little monkey and I am going to sign it for you okay?"

A day full of sunshine, smiles, and lasting memories.
