Students in Ferndale High’s Room 412 received a great surprise this afternoon when they walked into their class to find their beloved classmate Trystan Saab sitting on the couch. Trystan had been away from his class since December when he was diagnosed with T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. T-man, as he is known, has been at Children’s Hospital in Seattle, fighting the cancer with chemotherapy but came up to visit his friends for the day. The students spend the afternoon laughing and playing UNO and other games while friends like Ferndale Police Officer Steve Gamage, FHS Athletic Director David Brame and other staff members and students popped in to say hello.
We captured highlights of the visit on video and we are sending it out to Trystan and his family with love.
