Jonathan is a 20 year-old young adult male who is battling cancer and has maintained a positive attitude during his fight. What seems to be driving him throughout this tumultuous process is his passion for music. Jonathan, loves to make and produce music, however he didn’t possess all the necessary tools to fully explore his passion. He’s talked about how he could create good sounds if he had a computer and the music production software to make the music he loves and enjoys. Jonathan also had a long standing childhood dream to ride on a fire truck. Jonathan’s social worker at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland contacted Oakland Firefighters Random Acts for help. We partnered together with IAFF Local 55 and Oakland Black Firefighters Association to purchase a laptop computer with music production software. Jonathan and his social worker had lunch at Station 20 and went for a ride on the fire truck. Then, Jonathan extinguished the candles on his birthday cake with a CO-2 canister. Thank you to Local 55 and OBFFA for your contribution and to OFD Fire Station 20 for your gracious hospitality!
