SPRINGFIELD, ORE - Tyler Strasheim qualified to receive a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon, because he has Duchenne's muscular dystrophy.
Tyler's wish was to have a firehouse play structure. The play structure was built with the help of volunteers from the Oregon Remodelers Association (ORA) and the Springfield Fire Department. The firetruck playhouse is wheelchair accessible.
But Tyler got a little more than he wished for with this deal. The Thurston Fire Station hosted Tyler and his family for lunch as a surprise Saturday, August 22, 2009.
