SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A San Diego-area boy who is battling cancer is getting the chance to meet one of his biggest idols.

Three-year-old Cristian is a big music fan, especially when it comes to tunes by singer Blanco Brown.

Brown is known for his hit song “The Git Up,” and young Cristian -- according to his mother -- loves the song and knows all of the dance moves involved.

Cristian’s mom also said he listens to Brown's songs in his toy Cadillac vehicle.

Cristian, who was diagnosed with leukemia on his third birthday, is set to have a surprise meeting with Brown prior to the singer's Thursday night concert at the House of Blues in downtown San Diego.

The once-in-a-lifetime experience is made possible by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Random Acts of Light” campaign.
