ELMER, N.J. -

A South Jersey boy who is battling cancer received a visit from some of his heroes this week.

Three-year-old Benjamin Graham from Elmer Township got a visit from Sergeant Storm Colleton and Trooper Brian Conover, along with a police officer from Little Silver, earlier this week.

According to the New Jersey State Police, Graham is battling an aggressive form of neuroblastoma and the officers wanted to come by and meet someone who calls them heroes.

The State Police posted pictures on their Facebook page and are hoping people leave words of encouragement for the boy and his family in the comments section on the page.

Benjamin got to sit in the police cars and was also given patches, shirts, and other gear fit for a little hero.
