Local firefighter fearlessly fights cancer foe

September 29, 2011

BASS LAKE - As a volunteer firefighter for 26 years for the Bass Lake Fire Department, Phil Banasiak is used to saving people’s lives. Fighting for his own life, on the other hand, is not something he is familiar with. On Saturday, Sept. 10, Banasiak felt fine; he worked all day, went out to dinner, came home, and fell asleep on the couch — but when he woke up Sunday morning, he was stunned to discover he was paralyzed from the waist down.
“It’s a kind of shock. How many people do you know that went to sleep on Saturday and woke up and couldn’t walk on Sunday?” Banasiak said.

That’s because a van with the “Hello Gorgeous” moniker was parked nearby, and Kirkland had seen a television news report on the organization recently.
“I had a blast,” she says of what followed, “and I wish more (hairdressers) would get involved. I’ve never had a pedicure or manicure before, and nobody’s washed my hair since I was a little kid! So it was good -- everybody was so friendly.”
