A 5-year-old boy with diabetes had a chance to meet his hero at the Prudential Center Friday night.

Nico, of Toms River, has always looked up to Nick Jonas because they both struggle with Type 1 diabetes.

Thanks to his mother and a local cancer organization called The Chase Ryan Olsen Foundation, Nico and his brother Dominic got to see the Jonas Brothers perform live.

Nick even got to meet Nick Jonas and the rest of the band backstage.

The family also got free tickets to the Jonas Brothers show in Atlantic City next Friday. They donated those tickets to a young girl with diabetes.
