Josh Dobbs surprises 5-year-old cancer patient

Tennessee quarterback Josh Dobbs has become known for acts of kindness toward young Vols fans and 5-year-old AJ Cuskey received a special surprise from Dobbs on Saturday.

Dobbs teamed up with Special Spaces, a non-profit organization that creates dream bedrooms to help children with life-threatening illness, to give Cuskey's room the perfect Tennessee makeover.

Back in October 2014, Cuskey's family noticed some coordination and walking problems during a vacation to Walt Disney World. Scans completed in Knoxville found tumors on Cuskey's brain, according to the family's Facebook page.

The look on Cuskey's face is priceless when he walks into his new room:

Of course in true Tennessee fashion, Cuskey breaks out into "Rocky Top" and gets everyone to sing-along with him.

It isn't the first time that Dobbs and Cuskey have spent time together as the quarterback visited the Cuskey family at Christmas. It's certainly another experience that Cuskey will never forget.
