The father of three ended up being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. Doctors have told him he had between 12 and 18 months to live. Brett has begun chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

Brett enjoys talking and cracking jokes with his friends. Due to circumstances, limited interactions means it’s really hard to stay in positive spirits.  However, the good people of his community found a way around that and gave him a drive-by celebration.

His coworker coordinated the event. They invited as many people as they could while keeping Brett in the dark. The celebration was on Easter and was led by his brother Brandon, who happens to be a fellow police officer.

More than 120 good people joined the parade in their cars, all with people holding up signs. His wife, Mariah, said they couldn’t help but cry, the love from these good people was overwhelming.
