Children Fighting Cancer Get the Ride of Their Lives Thanks to Generous Couple

One couple is bringing smiles to the faces of sick kids this holiday season.

Eric and Amity Peterson, from Portland, Oregon, decided to put their extensive collection of exotic cars to good use recently when they started the organization Dream Drives for Kids.

The plan is to take sick kids in the Portland area for a ride in a dream car to add some joy to their lives and give the families a chance to make a happy memory together outside the hospital, Yahoo reported. When the drive is over, the Petersons offer each child a video from the trip and a set of Hot Wheels.

See the Peterson’s drive with Gideon, 4, who has a rare form of childhood melanoma, in the video below:
