HFD Fire Captain Christian Wong and his family were presented with a grant on Nov. 21, 2014. The funds were provided to help the Wong family meet bills associated with care for their young son, who was burned in an accident. The Wong family traveled with their son to emergency care in Honolulu, and were able to stay with him while he underwent medical procedures and a long recovery process.
"My family and I would like to express our extreme gratitude to The Greg Cameron Firemen's Fund and all those who support the Foundation for providing assistance to us in our time of need...the gift you gave us does not only represent a monetary amount, it also represents the most precious thing a person could ever receive: time. How many times did I get to hear my son's laughter because I was able to stay with him because of your gift? How many hugs and good night kisses did I receive because of your gift? You may have measured the gift you gave us in dollars and cents but I measure it in story times and tuck-ins and for that I am truly grateful to all of you for giving us this most precious gift.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we truly appreciate it."
Christian, Tricia, Avery and Brennan Wong
