San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood will soon be delivering a surprise gift for one of his favorite 'firefighters.'

River Laurence was diagnosed with Stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma in 2014 at the age of two. Now 5 years old, River has become an honorary firefighter here in the Alamo City.

He loves the NBC television series "Chicago Fire," so we decided to pull a few strings and get him something that's sure to bring a smile to his face and prove what a true hero he is to all of us.
