It was a bittersweet day for a Virginia family. Their young son died of cancer, but on this day, they secured part of his legacy.
In fact, you might see it soon on a roadway near you.
Mathias Giordano was just 13 years old when he died this past December. His Loudoun County family wanted to honor his wish and make sure Virginia has a childhood cancer specialty license plate.
They hope it will raise awareness, generate research money, and one day, lead to a cure.
Mathias' parents, Roya and Chris, put the tags on their cars for the first time Wednesday.
They are certain Mathias knows they have finally reached that goal.
"I feel like he is always sitting here watching me every day," said Roya Giordano. "Every move that I make, he is always there. I can't sit still. I need to keep on fighting."
