Eli Bright, a 3-year old boy from Kentucky, was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. He has been placed on a clinical trial which has greatly increased his quality of life. Even though his life span is uncertain, he still thinks of being a fire fighter. Through the efforts of friends and family, Eli was brought to Clearwater to visit with Winter the Dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. But, first, he was surprised with a visit to Clearwater Fire and Rescue Department Station 45. There, he was able to be the “fire chief” for a day before being taken by a fire truck to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
