Fund Raiser to Help a Firefighter Battle Cancer

This message comes from Tim Jones, Deputy Chief of the Prospect Heights Fire Department:

We write this note in the hopes that you can help us support one of our brothers. One of our firefighters has recently been diagnosed with cancer, something that is a challenge for any family. What makes this situation more serious, is that his son also has a serious ongoing medical condition that has advanced in the last month causing him to lose the vision in his left eye. His son’s condition has meant visits to MAYO clinic, specialists and countless doctors, all while he battles his own cancer.

Can you please post this flyer in as many places as possible? We hope to get the word out as we support our brother through this challenge.

Firefighter fundraiser

The flyer is downloadable for those who can post it it their department.
