One of 6-year-old Ethan Dean's favorite things to do is watch the garbage truck make its rounds. And on Tuesday, he got to fulfill his dream of riding around in that truck to collect trash.
"Well, it's an unusual wish," Michelle Flynn, who works with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, told KOVR. "Like I said, he loves trash, so he's gonna learn all about it tomorrow."
Ethan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when he was just weeks old, according to The Sacramento Bee.
