Beckett Wyatt-Kymmie Wyatt

Beckett Wyatt’s personality is so inspiring to the people around him, these kind acquaintances organized a special ride to pick him up for his Tuesday chemotherapy appointment.

The 9-year-old was picked up from his local soccer field in Midlothian, Virginia and taken to the roof of the VCU Medical Center via his first ever helicopter ride.

Beckett’s spirits have never been dampened since he was diagnosed with bone cancer in June 2016. So as a way of brightening up his weekday appointment, a classmate’s mother and Whit Baldwin, president of HeloAir in Sandston, Virginia, arranged for the special lift.

“Beckett’s story brings to light the beauty of human nature, that in the face of adversity we band together to bring love, joy and support to a child and their family,” Beckett’s physician, Megan R. Lyle, said in a statement to ABC News. “The journey through childhood cancer is about much more than radiation treatments, clinic visits and chemotherapy. It’s the individuals and organizations throughout the state of Virginia, and from New York to Florida, who have stepped in to support and encourage Beck and his family.”
