LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Canaan Sandy, 31, is hoping to be enshrined in ESPN's Fan Hall of Fame. 

The Independence County Razorback fan has made the finals of the second annual contest. 

On Tuesday, Canaan spent time at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock hoping to get more votes (click here to vote for him). It's the same hospital where he has had several surgeries. 

Canaan had a sign telling folks he made the Top 10 and was asking for votes. As they walked away he would hand them a card and say, "Thank you for your help, thank you so much."

Canaan said he loved talking to people about the contest

 "I am so happy about it," he said. "We need more votes."

His mother Ginger made the nearly three-hour trip from their home to the Capital City, she said this contest is special for her son.

"I think for him it makes him normal," she said. "Shows to the world that it is ability and not disability."

The contest will wrap up Wednesday night. You can vote up to three times a day.
