This is an extra-special Wednesday Props because it involves people I know–even a couple members of my family:
Sometimes when someone you know is going through something tough, they don’t need financial support as much as they need emotional support. Friendship. Just to know someone is there by their side, holding them up on their bad days and cheering for them on the good ones. It comes down to just doing something to show you care.
On Memorial Day, the firemen of Tully rallied around one of their own. Dave, a volunteer fireman, had been going through a nightmare no one wants to face–his wife was sick. She had been diagnosed with cancer and had already been receiving radiation treatments. She’d lost her hair. So Dave shaved his head. Simple as that.
But everyone knows about the brotherhood of firemen and how they support each other. So on Memorial Day, the firemen of the Tully fire department shaved their heads to support Dave’s wife. Just a little something, but I bet it meant the world to her.
But here’s why I am so incredibly proud: my brother-in-law, a volunteer fireman, and my nephew, fireman-in-the-making, were there and ready to get their heads shaved.
Here’s my brother-in-law:
And here’s my nephew:
I don’t think you could get much prouder than I am when I see those pictures.
And here’s the whole crew:
Kudos, Tully firemen. Kudos.
