HOLMEN, Wis. -

It's a true example of cub scouts coming around one of their own.

While scouts with Pack 91 in Holmen moved up in rank Sunday, more important is what they lost at the awards ceremony at the Holmen American Legion.

One of their fellow scouts, 9-year-old Aaron Johnson was diagnosed with leukemia just a few weeks ago.

One of his biggest fears is losing his hair as his treatment begins, so the scouts came up with a plan to shave their heads to show Aaron their support.

His dad was there and said when Aaron found out what his fellow scouts were doing, his reaction was priceless.

"He had a great big smile. To a dad, that's pretty cool. We don't get a lot of big smiles, so that was pretty cool," said Aaron's dad Rob Johnson. "We are touched beyond words. It's amazing to us. It shows the character of the boys that are in scouting."

The scouts said they're excited to show Aaron he's not alone.

While some have never had their head shaved before, they said it's worth it to send Aaron some encouragement.

"I think he's going to be surprised and really happy cause then we'll be like him," said cub scout Van Maxwell.

Aaron has a long road ahead of him.

His dad said he'll be in the hospital for at least four months, but so far, he is responding well to treatments.
