Remember Scarlett Schneider?
She’s the 4-year-old girl who just came home after an attack of lupus nearly killed her.

She spent three of the last four months in a medically-induced coma in Fargo, as doctors treated her.
We showed you her first day home last week.

Today, she visited the Minot Fire Station to say thank you to firefighters and police officers who played a charity hockey game to raise money to help cover her family’s medical expenses.
Scarlett and her family got to tour the station – and she even got to sit in a fire truck.
She and her father were happy for the chance to say thanks to all those who helped her out.

“Do you like those trucks?”
(Sheldon Schneider, Father of Scarlett) “Yeah, she’s never been to a fire hall before so this is pretty special for us but to get here and see the big trucks and see everybody that helped out when she was sick in the hospital.”

Scarlett is ahead of projections for being able to walk and her mother says she’s hopeful her daughter will make a full recovery.
