BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

There has been talk about a special honor to a little boy who touched many hearts, while doing so much for those in need.

Councilwoman Tara Wicker hopes to name the overpass on North Boulevard between 10th and 19th streets the "Trevor Sims Memorial Bridge."

Sims lost his battle to cancer last month. He was only 11 years old, but his memory lives on through his wish to feed the hungry in the Baton Rouge area.

As of last month, the Baton Rouge Food Bank had collected more than 34,000 pounds of food and $64,000 in donations through the "Trevor's Wish" campaign.

When given the opportunity to make a dying wish, instead of going to Disney World or meeting a celebrity, his dream was to help feed the hungry.
