Five-year-old Benjamin Goldberg was treated to a great time at the Idaho-Old Dominion University football game earlier in November.

Goldberg had battled cancer for two months, so Old Dominion decided to give the youngster a special day. 

First, he was invited to do the coin toss before the game. When it came time for halftime, Goldberg got to go back on the field with the band.

Goldberg also got to conduct the band in "Thriller" by Michael Jackson, his favorite artist. He loves music, and he showed it by breaking out some moves while conducting. 

Hat tip to College Spun for the find.
