Teen Firefighter Battling Cancer Asking For T-Shirts
Can any of our local fire departments help out?
According to 9 News, 16-year-old Timothy Richardson was recently diagnosed with t-cell Leukemia and needs our help while in the hospital receiving treatment.
Richardson is a fire fighter in training at the Hy-View Fire Company and all he's ever dreamed of doing is to become a firefighter and with him being sick , he has to put those dreams on hold, for now.
Here is were we can help out, while Tim goes through his treatment, he wants to wear a different fire company's t-shirt every day when he's in the hospital. For the next month he'll be receiving chemotherapy at Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo. Doctors say that his battle with Leukemia is expected to last at least two years.
