APPLETON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted their 7,000th wish and it went to a 6-year-old boy from Appleton.
Benjamin Thompson was diagnosed with cancer three years ago.
He told the organization that he wanted his own Christmas light display synchronized to music.
The community came together for the last few weeks to make it happen. It required collaboration from nearly 10 different companies.
Family and friends from the community came out to watch the show with Ben.
"Seeing all the support for him has just been overwhelming kind of, and just fantastic because I didn't realize people are so supportive and it is awesome, just awesome," said Nicole Thompson, Ben's mother.
Ben's special christmas light show can be seen every Thursday through Sunday through the end of the year.
