A Tulsa boy boy who was granted a special wish for his 13th birthday this summer has died from bone cancer. 

2 Works For You told you in August how Hunter John Hargreaves' dream came true when local family-owned businesses unexpectedly donated enough money to send him to Florida to watch sea turtles.

The surprise trip meant the world to him, friends said. 

Hunter wanted to be a sea turtle rescuer when he grew up, he said. He died on Monday, a year after his cancer diagnosis.
