Texas 3-year-old battles brain tumor

HOUSTON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - 3-year-old Bennett Nest from Houston is battling a brain tumor.

But that hasn't stopped him from collecting over 900 bears to give to other sick children in the area.

A Vietnam veteran, who did not want to be identified, heard about Bennett's selfless act, and has given him his Bronze Star, calling Bennett a real-life hero.

The only condition of receiving the Star is that Bennett must do his best to soldier through his treatment and stick around to help pick another hero to whom the award can be passed.
