Six year-old, Nathan Norman, a Rustburg, Va. native, played a big role in today’s Presidential inauguration. He is battling a deadly type of brain cancer.

Nathan first made news when he sent out a YouTube video, saying his last wish was for police and firefighters to send him Christmas cards.

When the video went viral, officers from around the world came to visit Nathan.

Members of the Secret Service, who were touched by Nathan’s story, asked him to take part in the inauguration ceremony.

As a part of being a secret agent for the day, Nathan rode in a limo behind the president during the Inaugural Parade.

He’s also been invited back to Washington in the spring to tour the White House.
