The cancer, as it spread throughout his body, gave him little time left to be with his family. Since he loved burnouts, the racing community came together to act in countless videos.

The hashtag #BurnoutsforWyatt had gone viral. Racers all over put burnout videos on their social media, or even YouTube to show their support for the young boy, who was battling for his life.

So many people were involved in the movement, including Street Outlaws, Joey Logano, Courtney Force, among others. On Instagram alone, there are more than 5,000 people doing burnouts for the young boy.

According to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, medulloblastoma – which is also known as cerebellar primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) – is a cancer that begins in the brain at the base of the skull. It then spreads throughout the brain and the spinal cord.

This is common cancer for children, as it accounts for 20% of all childhood brain tumors. Each year, there are 250-500 cases of children being diagnosed with this disease.

Most times, though, children, who are under 16, are the ones who get this disease the most. It is more common in boys than girls.
