PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –It’s a dream come true for six-year-old Aiden Riebel.

He’s officially sworn in as an honorary Washington Township firefighter.

Aiden has been battling Leukemia since he was one.

He went into remission for a while, but has learned that the deadly disease has returned for the third time.

More than anything this very sick little boy wanted to become a firefighter and one town came together to make that happen.

Ed Weitzman of the Washington Township Fire Department says, “He wants to be a firefighter so if we can make that wish come true, that’s what we’re going to do”

Aiden’s day just kept getting better from becoming a fireman.

He got to meet his favorite Phillies baseball player Carlos Ruiz who made a special appearance presenting him with an autographed jersey.

Ruiz says, “This is special.”

All in all, Aiden says it was a good day.

“I haven’t had this much fun but today was a pretty cool day”

And with a nustle from the Phillie Phanatic, another wish comes true for an incredibly resilient little boy.

Aiden’s mom says, “He’s really a special kid because most kids with a relapse for a third time don’t make it and he’s still here.”

Aiden says his favorite part of the day– seeing the Phillie Phanatic, of course!
