Ken Yingling lives in Polo, IL and is a volunteer for the Polo Fire Department. Ken also should be awarded the 2019 Father of the Year Award for what he did on Tuesday for his son Nathaniel who suffers from Alopecia Areata,  an auto immune disease that causes him to lose his hair.

According to WIFR, Ken Yingling decided recently that he wanted to do some crazy things to raise money for  the Children's Alopecia Project, and by crazy I mean get blasted by 3,000 gallons of water from a fire truck, get tased AND pepper sprayed. Seriously.

This is the teaser Ken Yingling put on Facebook yesterday ahead of his "Alopecia fundraiser punishment"...


Sounds kinda awful right? Wait to see you the "punishment" in action...



Ken, I know that if my children were in danger I would suffer an endless string of tortures to insure their safety, but what you went through yesterday looks absolutely terrible. You are my new parenting hero, and Nathaniel is damn lucky to have a dad like you! God Bless you both!
