Bob Hehn Medical Fundraiser

Bob Hehn is a 22 year veteran of the Milwaukee Fire Department, father of 2 and great friend to all.  Bob has committed himself to helping the citizens of the City of Milwaukee and spends his spare time as an active member of the Axemen Firefighters Motorcycle Club raising money for various firefighter and military charities.  Now Bob needs your help!

In late 2014 at the age of 48, Bob was experiencing throat pain and noticed a lump growing on the left side of his neck.  Concerned that the lump was getting larger and his sore throat not getting better, Bob went to see an ENT who in turn referred Bob to an oncologist for what was believed to be squamous cell carcinoma. Bob was officially diagnosed with stage 4 Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the tonsil and throat and began 7 weeks of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation.  During the course of his treatment Bob was unable to swallow and has lost a substantial amount of weight. Unable to eat solid foods, Bob currently gets his nutrients through a  feeding tube and is on a regular regimine of pain medication. Bob is currently recovering at home. 

100% of this fundraiser will go to benefit Bob with medical expenses or any other needs he may require during his bout with cancer.
