Bend Fire Surprises Tumalo Sparrow

Something very special happened yesterday thanks to the Bend Fire Department!

Tristan is a courageous kindergarten student at Tumalo Community School who is battling Rhabdomyosarcoma, a form of cancer. This strong 5 year old has already beat cancer once but unfortunately, it has returned. Tristan is fighting this horrible disease and is now receiving and responding to chemotherapy.

The Bend Fire Department is very involved in the Sparrow Clubs program and wanted to do something special for Tristan. They decided to surprise Tristan and his siblings with a private ride in a brand NEW fire truck from school to have dinner at the fire hall! 

Tristan is also Tumalo’s Sparrow and the school continues to fundraise for his ongoing medical and travel expenses. If you’re interested in helping Tristan, you can call the school at 541-382-2853.

Thank you Bend Fire and to the entire team at Tumalo Community School for supporting Tristan and his family!
