AKRON, OH - An Akron boy got to celebrate his 7th birthday at his favorite spot on earth: McDonald's.

7-year-old Jude is a huge fan of McDonald's, and so the folks at the Akron Medina Road location got together to surprise him by making him an honorary team member for his birthday. He got to go behind the counter and make his own cheeseburger, which is his absolute favorite menu item.

Ronald McDonald was on hand to greet Jude as well.

Jude has overcome lots in his 7 years on earth: he suffered a stroke before he was even born, and doctors weren't sure he'd ever walk or talk, much less make his own cheeseburger!

Happy birthday, Jude!
