RUSTBERG, Va. — It was a simple Christmas wish from a terminally ill 6-year-old boy more than 600 miles away that has caught the attention of many local police officers this holiday season.
While Nathan Norman from Rustburg, Va., was undergoing a round of chemotherapy in September, he made one simple Christmas wish — to receive cards and letters from police, firefighters and other emergency personnel. His heroes.
