Little boy with brain cancer fulfills his dream by visiting John Deere

Posted: Updated:

A 4-year-old boy with brain cancer had his wish come true this week. Aiden Remme and his family traveled from Brewster, Minnesota to Waterloo so he could be the "boss" of John Deere for a day.

We spoke with his mother Tracy while they were between doctor appointments at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. She says Aiden was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor earlier this year. The chemo wasn't working and the tumor grew.

She says, "We had received some not so good news a few weeks ago and one of his big things he was worried about was that he wasn't going to be able to combine with his papa. He loves farming."

Some people at John Deere heard his story and invited Aiden to visit,  a dream come true for the "strong little farmer" as he's called.

Tracy says, "They gave him a special hat that said "the boss" and a little ID that said his name on it. He was pretty excited."

It was a day Tracy says will help them get through the tough ones ahead, and a day this "strong little farmer" and fighter will never forget.
