Amputee cyclist finishes ride, meets Baby Jameson

SPOKANE -- A Florida man has arrived to a hero's welcome, biking into Spokane more than five weeks and 3,200 miles after he set off from Miami on a quest to help a 1-year-old boy born without hands or forearms.
Double arm amputee, tri-athlete and motivational speaker Hector Picard reached Spokane on Saturday afternoon, completing the journey he began June 8 -- to bike across the country and raise money for Jameson Davis' prosthetic arms.
Picard told KREM-TV that he heard about Jameson six months ago and felt compelled to help. Picard lost his arms in a 1992 electrical accident.
Picard said his second goal was to prove "anything is possible."
Jameson's mother, Brooke, told KREM, "We can't even wrap our minds around what he's doing. It's incredible."
