Halloween is Jeremiah Lilly's birthday, and this year the Spokane Police helped the 4-year-old celebrate in a big way.
Over a dozen Spokane Police cars, several fire trucks, tow trucks, a motorcycle club and several other citizens hosted a drive-by birthday celebration for Jeremiah on his big day, according to Spokane Police Cpl. Ronald Van Tassel. According to a Go-fund-me campaign set up by Jeremiah's family, his airway hasn't developed since he was 15-months old.
Jeremiah was born with a restricted airway, and later this week the 4-year-old will travel across the state for major surgery to correct it, Van Tassel said. The recovery will be extensive. The 4-year-old will be put on a ventilator and be in a coma for some time after the surgery, Van Tassel said.
