Firefighter/Veteran in need

My name is Lieutenant Gary W. Cole and am a fire officer for the New Haven fire department in New Haven, Connecticut. Recently my brother firefighter Mike Carrano has been diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer, which is one of the worst forms to have. Needless to say his illnesses has ended his career. Mike and I were appointed together 15 years ago and he will only be able to earn a fraction of his pay. Mike is a service veteran and served our country in the army. Mike is so selfless, caring and has given so much to others I can only ask we show him our support and give a little back, so maybe we could ease an iota of burden for him. Thank you in advance for you kindness and generosity. Sincerely, Lieutenant Gary W. Cole, NHFD
