Excerpts from the Northwestherald.com:

The Harvard Firefighters’ Association helped raise more than $10,000 for a 30-year veteran of the Harvard Fire Protection District who recently was diagnosed with cancer.

In September, the association hosted a fundraiser called “Fight for Phil” to benefit Firefighter Phil Jacobs, who was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He has been undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatment and stem cell transplants.
