Bella Bush, the Wichita 7-year-old fighting brain cancer, got a surprise in her driveway on Monday evening.
The “Pink Heals” fire truck visits those fighting cancer and with the help of a local non-profit, the truck and its crew visited the Bush family.
“It’s pink,” Bella squealed.
A local non-profit helped make the surprise happen. Chris Klausmeyer lost his brother, Mark, to cancer. Since then, the family has established “Cause for Klaus,” adopting two local families per year to provide financial assistance to during the patient’s battle with cancer.
“We got such great love and support for my brother that we decided to give it back and we wanted to keep it local,” Chris Klausmeyer said. “It’s very nice to be able to touch people’s hearts in a way that we were all touched when my brother was going through the cancer.”
Bella got to sign “Nicki,” the Pink Heals firetruck and all the firefighters helmets.
The Pink Heals truck and crew made an additional stop in Wichita at Fire Station 21, where Curt Mohr was greeted by family, friends and firefighters.
Mohr is recovering from brain surgery to remove a tumor. He is a 24 year veteran of Wichita Fire Department.
