VIDEO: In the town of Delafield a firefighter and his three-year-old son are having a shared experience no one would wish for. Both have been diagnosed with brain tumors and critical treatment lies ahead for the young child especially. Nicholas Stacey and his three-year-old son Brayden have found support in the firefighting and emergency responder community. But even with all that help the family says they're still finding themselves at a scary crossroads. But step into their home as a visitor and you'd never know their anxiety. "The living room, you can barely move when they're playing, there's so many toys and trucks out that it's hard to walk through the living room," Sarah Stacey, Brayden mother, said. She watched her husband and son play on the carpet as she held her 4-month-old son Beckham. Looking over all the firefighting-related toys, Dad is clearly an influence for Brayden. As a town of Delafield firefighter Nick Stacey regularly takes Brayden to the station. "If he could be a firefighter right now, he would. We go to the fire department. He plays on every truck," Nick said. But this past summer, Nick says playtime often turned to pain.
