Ian Satterfield – Giving Back to Children with Cancer


Ian and LeslieIan Satterfield, a volunteer with Northern Nevada Children’s Society with a passion to make a difference.  With two daughters of his own, giving back to children is a close passion to his heart.  So he’s doing just that.  On March 15, 2013, with the help of other Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District Firefighters, their union hosted a pre-shave event for St. Baldrick’s. Which is a head-shaving event to raise money for children fighting cancer.

Four families with children who are fighting cancer came to Station 36 in the Arrowcreek area to enjoy a BBQ dinner, station tours, fire truck rides and even got to spray water out of the fire hoses! The families got to enjoy the company of firefighters in our community and watch about ten firefighters (both from Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District and Sparks Fire Protection District) and five children shave their heads in their honor.  Smiles, tears and stories were shared among the group.Random Acts of Kindness

The event was a night to remember for those children.  The smiles on their faces as they rode away in the fire trucks was heart touching.  These kids were so happy to be able to spend time with their “hero’s”.  The four families shared their  progress with the firefighters. It was an amazing night for all who were able to join in the festivities.  Truly touching to see the community come together to support such a great cause.

Ian is showing the community just how easy it is to make such an incredible impact in others’ lives.  He’s truly a leader at heart, inspiring others to give back to the community in which they live.  Interested in hosting an event to raise money for children with cancer in Northern Nevada?  Please visit Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation.
