Justin Anderson has been through a lot and now he wants to give back to the community that helped him so much.
Justin is an Iraq war vet that lives in Bellevue, Nebraska. While in Iraq he suffered injuries that lead to his leg being amputated. On top of that he has gone through a tough fight with brain cancer.
Even after all of these tribulations, Justin can’t help but feel thankful to his community. So when he was outfitted with an off-road wheelchair by the “Independence Fund,” he got creative to fund a way to give back.
He fixed the chair up with its own snowplow with an adjustable tilt! Every snowfall he can be seen plowing the roads to children can avoid slipping. He told NBC WOWT:
“The community has supported me immensely with my struggles and tough times as I had a leg amputated and my fight with brain cancer. This is my way of giving back. It’s very gratifying. It’s nice to know you’re appreciated. But even if I didn’t get any response from anyone – or nobody said Thank You – I’d still do it.”
