An 11-year-old boy battling leukemia got a special visit Sunday at his Fresno home.

Volunteers from the Pink Heals National Tour drove a fleet of special firetrucks right up to his house.

Jake Devorak was diagnosed with leukemia just two months ago and his family says treatments are physically draining for him, but he was all smiles when dozens of people showed up in support.

"It was very fun," Jake said. "I didn't expect this many people and trucks and cars but it was very fun."

Jake says his favorite part of the day was signing one of the trucks.

Volunteers drive the fleet across the United States to promote the Pink Heals organization.
