Your Fight is Our Fight

Tony "Pags" Pagliaro was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in Febrary of 2014.   He underwent surgery and then radiation and chemotherapy, also having multiple other surgeries until his most recent and largest one in March of 2017.  But, that isn't who Pags is.  Tony Pagliaro is a son, brother, husband, and most importantly a father to Lexi (13), Antonio (9), and Kylie (5).  He also continues to help his community as the chief of Schuyler Ambulance and is always there for any of his brothers or sisters in EMS.  He is also on the board of the amazing organization Believe 271.  Tony was standing along side his brothers and sisters the whole time to get the new Presumptive Cancer Bill passed so that no volunteer firefighter will ever have to fight alone.  Tony got news that noone wants to receive last Thursday that his treatments are no longer working.  He is the strongest person that any of us have ever met and he continues to fight, he does not let cancer define who he is.  He continues to spend as much time as he can with his family and kids.  Pags' wish was always to take his kids to Disney World.  After hearing the news last week from his wife Nicole, hundreds and hundreds of people reached out and wanted to know what they could do for Pags and his family.  So, were hoping we can make Tony's wish come true and send him and his family on a vacation to Disney World in Florida with all expenses paid.  Thank you to everyone for their continued texts, calls, and prayers...
