Dreams Come True For 11-Year-Old Autistic Boy Battling Muscular Dystrophy
Eleven-year-old Daniel Crane, who has Muscular Dystrophy and Autism, has a big wish. He wants to be a firefighter, and tour a fire station. Today, the Bossier City Fire Department and Pay It Forward Networking are partnering to grant that wish.
Daniel will be welcomed by firefighters at Station Number 6 on Riverside Drive for a tour of the station, and he'll get his very own gear. He'll also receive a firefighter helmet signed by firefighters in Afghanistan.
Pay It Forward Networking founder Kassi Robinson says the wishes the organization grants are made possible by individuals simply networking and combining resources.
"This idea was born after experiencing a day of generosity from friends and complete strangers come together through networking to make a young man's dreams come true while he continues his battle with Muscular Dystrophy," Robinson says.
Daniel's tour of Station 6 starts at 5 p.m. today.
