A Westmoore High School Senior got the surprise of his life at halftime of the "Moore War" Friday night. 

Seventeen-year-old Hunter Brown has been fighting leukemia for the past two years. 

Friday night, Hunter thought he was presenting a check to the Make A Wish Foundation, proceeds from fundraisers this week at Westmoore and Moore High Schools.  After Brown presented the check, Make A Wish pulled a surprise on him, by rolling out his revamped 1995 Chevy Silverado. 

Karoll Martin Paint and Body Shop from Tulsa donated more than 250 hours of labor to transform Brown's truck from a dull dark blue, to shiny orange and black.

"I'm a huge OSU fan.  I can't believe this.  I never dreamed of this, it's amazing," he said. 

Oklahoma's "Make A Wish" Foundation grants the wishes of kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
