Hundreds of trucks line the streets for 3-year-old's funeral procession

-

Hundreds of trucks showed up on Friday to honor a boy who died of a rare bone disease.

In Mesa, a special funeral truck procession honored 3-year-old Elijah Steffen, who died of a rare disease that targets bones and organs.

Elijah was set to have a stem cell and bone marrow transplant, which was donated by his baby sister. 

However, before the surgery, he went into septic shock when he lost his liver function.

Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Elijah was set to serve as a special guest at the Phoenix Monster Truck Jam within the coming months.
