Raised by 28 people in 33 months
Jonathan Dudley  WATERVLIET, NY


One of our close friends and brother Frank was diagnosed with Esophagus Cancer, We are trying to raise money for Frank to help offset the cost of medical expenses. Frank is one of many in this world who is fighting this fight. This is a man who at a drop of a dime will do anything for anyone at anytime. Frank Joined the Fire Department about 2 years ago and fell in love with Helping people in need. Without being asked, Frank will go above and beyond for his community no matter the situation. Frank was raised in Cohoes NY, and has lived in Watervliet for the last 13 years. Frank has been detailing cars his entire life and is the supervisor for the Detail shop at Mannheim Albany auto auction where he has worked for 7 years. He is married to Trish Ellsworth, between them they have 5 children and 6 grandchildren that adore "Just Frank." He is a member of the Watervliet Elks, the Watervliet Columbkill, VFW, and Schuyler Heights Fire Company. He has always been the kind of guy that will do anything for anyone at anytime. His sense of humor and kindness is what draws people instantly to him. Words cant express the love and friendship Frank offers. Please help us help him and his family meet our goal. While undergoing various treatments and surgery's, Frank will be out of work for about 2-4 months with no additional income coming in to pay his bills. We all can do our part and help a Firemen out who without question, would help you without even asking your name or why you need help.....

I couldn't be prouder of the men and women I serve with. The amount of help offered and support we received from our fellow firefighters and community was overwhelming for Fighting for Frank R Ellsworth's cancer benefit. I am really proud of all your support and coming together on this. We managed to raise over $14,000.00 dollars for Frank!

However we are still $9,000.00 short from MY goal. I still need support!

Thank you everyone so much for all of your support, love, and very generous gifts. My uncle appreciates them more than you could ever know!! His port is in now and is located in his neck. Today he has another radiation treatment. After the holidays he will begin chemo every day Monday-Friday. This will cost atleast $40,000 and that does not include minor surgeries like getting his port in or biopsies or medication! He will have foot atleast 20% of this enormous bill. :( Cancer is a terrible disease and affects so many lives. Thank you so much for your continued support and every penny raised will help! Please share this with friends and family using Facebook, Twitter, word of mouth, etc. To uncle frank-- I love you and hope today goes well
