Keegan Keppner was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor, called a Glioma, when he was only three.
Doctors told the boy’s parents he wouldn't survive the aggresive cancer. But Keegan has been determined to fight on, and he has.
There was also something else he wanted to do, help homeless people.
So on a gray day in Eugene, Oregon’s “Whoville” tent camp, that’s just what he did.
The fourth-grader and his stepfather Steven Macgray delivered home cooked chili, rice, and beans to those who live there.
Macgray spent some time on the streets himself when he was younger, so he jumped at the idea to help.
Keegan told ABCNews.com "it's sad to see them suffer, there are a lot of nice people down there."
Keegan, who is in remission at this time, has endured several rounds of chemotherapy. The kind of treatment that makes a person feel terrible, nauseous. He lost his hair and his energy, but still he fought on and stuck to his dream.
The 10-year-old and Macgray fed just under 20 people the past few days but that may mark the end of their good deed.
City workers placed a "no trespassing" around the area after officials said the site needed to “be swept clean” before a permanent fence closes it forever.
Keegan told KVAL he’d like to help them find a place because “I don't want anyone to become homeless."
