Arizona firefighter battling cancer needs your help

I was browsing the Internet today and was touched by a news story I saw about an East Valley firefighter battling cancer in need of help. The story was so touching, in fact, I decided to try my best to bring some extra attention to it.

Superstition Fire and Medical District firefighter and Paramedic Jim Crowley has been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma since October 2017 and his current treatment isn’t working. Unfortunately, he will soon need a bone marrow transplant and his insurance company has denied coverage for the procedure. Crowley’s Worker’s Compensation claim was denied because he is having difficulty proving he got cancer from an on-the-job injury.

Despite all of this Firefighter Crowley who has three children is still staying upbeat and is often even seen with a smile on his face as he talks about his family and kids. He seems like such an amazing person since his fellow firefighters are going out of their way trying to help him. They’ve been helping with his homes landscaping and even bringing him meals to eat. It really shows the true brotherhood and family-like atmosphere you acquire when you’re working together as a firefighter/paramedic.

Fellow firefighters at the Superstition Fire and Medical District has set up a GoFundMe account to help raise money for Jim Crowley’s legal fees as he attempts to gain coverage from his insurance company and other family/medical expenses. Please contribute if you can and help spread the word.

Thanks for reading!
