A special treat for boy battling a brain tumor

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A 9 year old Waterloo boy got a very special treat Wednesday night.

More than 50 people showed up, including Santa, to sing Christmas carols to Oliver Palmer. On top of that, Oliver got to take a ride in a fire truck around the neighborhood. He was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor exactly one year ago.

"It's kind of a hard time coming up, and everyday is a gift so we celebrate every day," said Oliver's mom, Stacy.

Last year, Oliver was named an honorary firefighter from the Waterloo Fire Department.
