A Vietnam veteran in Florida whose cancer treatments make his body feel like it’s burning got his Christmas wish fulfilled: a winter wonderland delivered to him to make snow angels.
Doctors told Albert Septien, diagnosed with stage four melanoma, that this would be his last Christmas, according to Fox 35 Orlando.
“This year has been hell because I have never been sick in my life and now here I am,” Septien, who may have been exposed to Agent Orange during his service, told the TV station.
Crews brought hundreds of bags of ice and sprayed it on the ground to make snow for Septien.
Today I saw a terminally ill man collapse into a pile of snow, with a beaming grin as he made a snow angel. In Florida. Dreams come true, guys. At least today, Albert's dream did. Make sure you watch @FOX13News at 5 and 6 for the story. pic.twitter.com/ob5ojGeO5E
