Tyler is a 5-year-old from San Antonio who was diagnosed with neoplasms, but he won’t let anything— not even his illness— intimidate him! In fact, his one true wish was to be a monster truck driver. "Why?" we asked. “Because I wanna crush cars!” Tyler responded enthusiastically.
Tyler loves all types of cars, from cop cars to monster trucks. So his one true wish was to be a monster truck driver. He spent a fun-filled day at the Monster Truck Jam, and received royal treatment from the monster truck drivers.
A limousine arrived to kick-off the wish day, so Tyler’s whole family rode to the arena in style. They were welcomed by the truck drivers, and Tyler had a blast meeting everyone. The truckers signed his Make-A-Wish shirt, and they even let Tyler try on their special uniforms!
Since Tyler is not quite old enough to drive, he did not get to cruise around on his own hot wheels. Instead, he got to sit in a truck for a mock “test drive!” Then, he sat back with his family to cheer on their favorite truckers during the Monster Jam show.
Tyler also received a stuffed toy to remember this special day. Of course, it wasn’t the typical stuffed animal… it was a stuffed replica of a monster truck called the Grave Digger!
