After a Toledo firefighter has served his community for nearly 30 years, fellow firefighters are asking for Toledoans’ assistance to help serve him. Toledo fire Lt. Darryl Murphy was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in March, 2017, and he is in need of a bone marrow transplant. He has been on sick leave for about a year. Toledo fire Battalion Chief Brian Byrd is helping to organize a bone marrow drive, “Do It for Darryl.” “Talking to Darryl about this, one of the things he always mentions, ‘If it’s not for me, they can help somebody else.’” Battalion Chief Byrd said. “Even in this personal crisis, he’s still thinking of other people who could be helped by the bone marrow registry, the donor registry.”
