SPOKANE, Wash. -- A Spokane toddler born without arms is getting some help from a complete stranger from Florida.

Hector Picard heard Jameson Davis’ story about six months ago and was compelled to help raise money to get him prosthetics.

Hector is a three time Ironman and is bicycling from Florida to Spokane to help raise the money needed.

Jameson turned 15 months on Friday and Saturday he’ll meet the stranger who has dedicated the last month of his life to help him.

Picard can actually relate to the life Jameson lives because he too doesn’t have arms.

“He was electricuted. His left arm goes down a little past the elbow. His right is entirely gone,” said Jameson’s mother Brooke Davis.

Brooke has been documenting Hector’s trip across the country. She has an ongoing scrapbook she’ll give to her son when he’s older.

“Jameson is going to grow up knowing this man who’s missing both his hands and is also going to teach him that the impossible is possible,” said Brooke.

The family says they’re eager to meet Hector. He’s expected to arrive in Spokane at 1:00 p.m. Saturday then they will head over to Prospector’s Bar and Grill in north Spokane for a silent auction.

The auction will help raise even more money for Jameson. Tickets will be available at the door for discounted food, drink and raffle entries.
