Colunga has been given 6 months to live because of an aggressive form of brain cancer. On Feb. 13, family and Crosspointe Baptist Church members surprised Cassy with granting her wish of taking a ride in a red Ferrari. The signature vehicle drove her to a meal at JT’s Restaurant in Munford.
Deputies, officers and troopers went to Cassy’s home and provided an escort for her dream ride in a red Ferrari. Sheriff’s Office personnel collected money and made a donation toward the remaining items on Cassy’s bucket list.
“It was truly an honor to help in a small way to see the huge smile on this precious child’s face during her ride through Tipton County,” Sheriff JT ‘Pancho’ Chumley said. “We send Cassy best wishes and she will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers in her fight.”
