DAVENPORT, Iowa-- Noah Holton knows something bug is going to happen today. But what the 13-year-old doesn't know is how big.

It's a surprise from Jordan's Joy, a charity established in honor of Moline's Jordan Schmidt, who lost his fight to cancer three years ago. Now, Jordan's mom, Michelle, works to spread joy to kids fighting a battle with a similar spirit to her son.

Today Noah Holton received a check to pay for a custom made wheel chair ramp for his home, something his mom Julie says will make day to day life drastically easier.

"Noah will be transferring to a power chair soon, and without the ramp, he wouldn't be able to get in and out of his home," says Noah's mom Michelle Sickler.

Noah is fighting Spastic Quadriplegia, a form of Cerebral Palsy where his muscles spasm and shrink, adding extra weight to his bones.

But the ramp wasn't the only surprise for the pint sized fighter. Jordan's Joy gave Noah a $1000 shopping spree at Game Stop in Davenport, Iowa.

And as Noah navigates the aisles in his dream world, it's a lot to take in all at once.

It's a day with some tears, but there's even more laughter.

"This has just made both of our dreams come true," says Sickler.

Michelle says the community helped her family when they went through Jordan's fight, and now, it feels good to give back and support another community member.
