Izeyah parties like a firefighter

Izeyah's wish to have a firefighter-themed party

“ The only thing that shined brighter than the lights was his smile. ”

There’s a new firefighter in town…

Sirens blaring, 3-year-old Izeyah, who battles a hematologic disorder, arrived at Calypso Cove Water Park on a big red fire engine. The only thing that shined brighter than the lights was his smile. Accompanied by his loved ones, Izeyah celebrated his wish day with much more than the firefighter-themed party that he wished for. As the ‘Captain of the Day,” Izeyah was geared up by the Margate/Coconut Creek Fire Department. He practiced using the fire hose, climbed up the engine’s ladder and rode around in a real fire engine

If that wasn’t enough to fire up his day, Spider-Man arrived on another fire truck just to meet Izeyah. But the biggest surprise of all for Izeyah was when he got a big hug from his father, who had flown in from Turks & Caicos just to be with his son on his wish day. 

After cooling down at the water park, Izeyah and his family headed to the fire station to take a tour and enjoy his cake with his new firefighter friends. With one last ride in the fire engine back to his North Lauderdale home, he said goodbye to the hometown heroes who will forever be emblazoned in his heart and memories.

According to his mother, “I don’t know how you managed it. He wanted a fire truck but he thinks we’d buy him some toys. This is just like a dream come true.”
