KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City, Missouri, teenager was greeted with a special surprise for his 18th birthday.
Friends and family members wanted to give Chris Saunders a birthday celebration he won't forget.
Saunders is battling cancer and hasn't been able to go to school in more than a year.
To help him celebrate turning 18, a surprise birthday parade, which included his teachers, was arranged.
"It felt amazing, " Saunders said. "I saw a bunch of my teachers that I haven't seen in a while, just a line of them, and it was great."
The parade featured a variety of vehicles, including police cars and some "cool cars" as Saunders put it. One of his favorites was seeing a McLaren.
Saunders said the parade meant the world to him.
"They came out and showed support for me," he said. "Just the love and everything is amazing".
