Firefighters across Spokane County are helping out a New York teen battling cancer. 16-year-old Timothy Richardson is a firefighter-in-training from New York. He is asking other firefighters for support after being diagnosed with leukemia in early March. While he says his cancer is treatable and he is getting chemo for the next month, his battle with leukemia will likely last years. That is where local firefighters come in. Richardson has dreamed of being a firefighter his entire life. While he goes through his treatment, he wants to wear a different fire company's t-shirt every day he is in the hospital. This story quickly went viral online as fire stations across the country are stepping in to donate shirts with their stations name on them.
