Over the years cancer has shown its ugly head. It took the lives of 2 members of my FD, along with my bestman and my father-in-law.

Thank you Schenectady Firefighters for this great undertaking.
I know the father of one of the chiefs in your department who is currently battling cancer. He is in my prayers every day. He is blessed to have firefighting brothers and sisters like you.
I lost my grandfather (Chief, West End, Hempstead Fire Department) to lung cancer, great uncle (Captain, Hempstead Fire Department) to skin cancer, and uncle (firefighter, Greenville Fire Department) to esophageal cancer. I am all too familiar with the pain and loss caused by cancer in our community.
I am proud to support you and wish you success with this noble endeavor.
