If this doesn’t make you ugly cry, you might not be human.

Young Alfonso Hoffman was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 11. Battling cancer at any age is tough, but particularly difficult for children. Hoffman’s uncle, Mike Garcia, knew that Alfonso wants to be a K-9 officer when he grows up. So, being the rad uncle that he is, Garcia called the California Highway Patrol — Southern Division and asked if the family could participate during one of the department’s training days. Not only did the police force say yes, they gave Alfonso the star treatment and even made a touching video of his day with the officers.

Prepare to cry as you watch little Alfonso live out his dream of training side-by-side with the officers he respects and looks up to. The best part, according to the video, is that Alfonso had no idea that he was about to live out a childhood dream. No, these are not tears. There is just something in both of my eyes.

From the jump, Alfonso was overcome with emotions.

Get ’em, Alfonso!

Alfonso’s mother was so grateful for the special moment her son was able to have with the police officers.
