A 16-year-old boy named Timmy out of my hometown of Buffalo, NY was recently diagnosed with T-cell leukemia.
He is a junior firefighter, and he had a special request for his fellow firefighters that his family shared on Facebook.
Timmy originally wanted to collect firehouse t-shirts so he could wear a different one each day that he is in the hospital receiving treatment.
The response has been amazing! He's received hundreds (250-500 according to the Oishei Children's Hospital) of boxes so far, and they actually had to give a different address for future packages since the hospital has overflowing bins already waiting for him to open.
If you belong to a firehouse here in Milwaukee, please send some swag his way!
