KSHB 41: Fire truck parade fulfills toddler's "Make-A-Wish"

By Gabriella Pagan

Two-year-old Greyson Veal began fighting for his life, again, when his b-cell acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia relapsed in December 2020, after his body stopped responding to chemotherapy.

In a race against the clock, Make-A-Wish, Children's Mercy and first-responders pulled together, granting Veal his final wish.

"Greyson has been passionate about fire trucks for as long as we can remember," Karla Veal, who is Greyson Veal's mom, said.

She says her son calls the trucks "woo-woos."

In a customized fire wagon, with his air tank in tow, Captain Greyson Veal rolled out for duty at the corner of Locust and Gillham Road in Kansas City, Missouri.

Karla Veal expressed how much it meant for her son to have this moment surrounded by those who have loved and helped him most along his cancer journey.
