MONROE, La. (AP) - Two Alabama brothers suffering from cancer got to spend the day with the cast of their favorite TV show, “Duck Dynasty,” in Louisiana.

Multiple news outlets report 8-year-old Brooks Turner and 5-year-old Sam Turner visited the warehouse in West Monroe Monday for Brooks’ trip as part of the Make-A-Wish program. Both Brooks and Sam suffer from retinoblastoma, a cancer affecting their eyes. Sam will get his wish, a trip to Disney World, in August.

The brothers met the show’s star Willie Robertson, went on a limo ride to Willie’s Duck Diner and visited the company’s Duck Commander warehouse. Brooks also made his own duck call.

The trip was coordinated in part by former Congressman Vance McAllister.

The family lives in Sylacauga, Alabama.
