Birthday surprise for terminally ill toddler

Something as simple as a kiss is something Victoria Zetinas mom will never forget.
This birthday will be one to remember.
Balloons, cake and special guest helped make that possible.
8-year-old Victor Gonzalez made a special wish for Victoria.
He's battling an illness himself but instead of thinking of himself he put Victoria first, someone he doesn't even know.
"I have a lot of faith ma'am they tell me that she's sick but I have a lot of faith that she's going to make it," father Alejandro Zetina said.
At just 14-months old Victoria is in the fight of her life.
Doctors don't expect her to make it to her second birthday.
Victoria's dad said no words can describe the 8-year-old's generosity.
"Everything is going to be alright god works in mysterious ways but he is very strong he's going to make it he TMs going to be alright he's going to be just like her they TMre both fighters," Zetina said.
Victor stayed just a few doors down from Victoria while in the hospital.
Even though he didn't know her Victor posted a message on our Action 4 News Facebook page asking the angels to give Victoria a special birthday. And they did...his aunt his "angel" made it possible.
"I just couldn't sit there and not do anything we got together with family members and friends that helped pitch in 20,50,100 dollars some more and we made it possible, Crystal Moya said.
One selfless act, by one 8-year-old boy made two wishes possible.
"That TMs my baby that TMs dad and I will continue to be there for her till the day god wants to take her from me."
More than $1,800 plus a brand new refrigerator was donated to the family.
The family said this is the first time in a long time Victoria looked happy.
If you would like to help little Victoria you can go to any Wells Fargo and donate under the name Nora Cuellar.
