Ocean Gate Firefighter Ron Smith was recently diagnosed with APL Leukemia. He joined the Fire Department last year and completed classes in March to become a certified Firefighter. Ron, like many Firefighters, follows in his father's and his grandfather's footsteps. Ron's father, Ron Smith Sr, was a volunteer Firefighter in Maine, and his Grandfather, William Britton, was an Ex-Chief of East Dover Fire Company and a Fire Commissioner in Toms River. Ron has already begun treatment and will be out of work for quite a while. Ron is the sole support for his family. Ron, his wife Emily, and their 4 children would appreciate any donations possible to help keep them moving forward during this tumultuous time. We are providing as much help as we can through the Fire Department, but more help will be needed for them to win this battle. If you can, please consider making a donation for Ron and his family.
