Project HERO was started for Nathan Norman. He is a 5-yr-old fighting cancer. All he wants to be when he grows up is a fireman. His story was posted on Wish
Upon a Hero, and first responders flocked to him. My truck was given to me, and when I heard about Nathan, I knew I had to do. something. I have contacted many companies to donate anything they can for this cause .To get the word out about this great foundation . Tim Bready and Nate VanderVliet were the masterminds behind the design of the wrap for the truck and the Guys at Truck n American have also been a great assets to the build of the truck
Eventually the truck will be auctioned and proceeds will go to Wish Upon a Hero foundation and St Jude's center for children.
