OMG!!! Tell me you at least teared up watching this!

Caleb Acosta is a 15-year-old diagnosed with brain cancer. Even though his goal is to beat the cancer, he still had a wish: to surf with Surf Dog Ricochet, a therapy dog. His wish was granted! He and hs family were flown out to California where he got to go surfing with Ricochet. 

His mom Kathy explained "My son is an amazing kid. So despite all his pain and all of his difficult situations that smile you see, it's always there. He always has it.... He's stronger than we are, no doubt. 

When talking about the experience Caleb said; "I just felt almost normal, finally. It felt really good to be free, just me, not worrying about anything."
