Girl battling kidney cancer gets ride to final chemo session in fire truck

(FOX News) - A 6-year-old California girl battling kidney cancer befriended members of her local fire department, and they were on hand to give her a lift in their station’s truck to her final chemotherapy appointment.

The Moraga-Orinda Fire District drove Finley Brown to Oakland’s UCSF Benoiff Children’s Hospital on Monday, Dec. 21, TODAY.com reported. Her younger brother Cooper, 4, also was invited on the ride. Finley had befriended the firemen at a festival over the summer.

“We’ve always taught our kids that whenever they see a fireman or a police officer or a soldier, it’s nice to approach them and thank them for keeping us safe,” Finley’s mother, A.J. Brown, told TODAY.com.

One of the firemen, Lucas Lambert, told the news station that Finley marched right up to the group of firemen at the festival and started talking to us with a “ton of confidence.”
