Firefighter Will Maldonado

The Maldanado Family needs your help.  Will is a professional Firefighter Paramedic at OIAFR.  He was diagnosed with Leukemia in February 2018.  He completed his chemo and was placed in remission June 2018. Just when his life was getting back to normal his Cancer came back stronger and more vicious. Will was placed in the hospital beginning of September.  Knowing that his immune system was weak, Will was determined to battle the Cancer monster again. The devastating news came recently that Wils Cancer is now Chemo resistant.  As knees hit the floor to pray and tears streamed down his face, I knew something had to be done. 

Will’s entire world is his family.  His face lights up when he talks about his wife and son.  Will is blessed with his amazing wife Beth and their loving son Jackson. Together they have always conquered life’s challenges with their faith in God. When Will isn’t working at the Fire station, He along with his wife are teaching others CPR, First aid, ACLS, and PALS.  The Maldanado family has given so much to their community and to all first responders. Now they need our help. 

As Will continues on his battle to beat Cancer, the bills are starting to pile up.  Co pays, deductibles, medications, treatments, and the expense of everyday life.  It’s becoming extremely overwhelming.  A family should not have to worry if they can pay the light bill or have food to eat when they are facing the horrible monster called Cancer. 

Will has been a dedicated Firefighter Paramedic for over 15 years.  I am asking any and all who are willing to please help this family.  No family should have to carry this burden alone.  Let us take the watch brother until your battle is complete.
