The Tiffin Fire Department is working to help one of their own.
Tiffin Firefighter Sean Tyler has been with the department for 12 years. For the last few years he has been dealing with liver failure which has recently developed into liver cancer. That is why Tiffin Fire and their firefighters union have decided that this year's 4th Annual Sports Raffle will raise proceeds for Sean and his family.
Along with the March event, they are selling these shirts that read "His Fight is our Fight."
Tiffin Firefighters Local 322 president Chad Everhart said Tyler is the seventh current or former Tiffin Firefighter who has been diagnosed with cancer.
“It’s been proven that firefighters have a 68 percent higher cancer rate than the average population. And, you know, he’s married, got 3 young kids, and while he is fighting this we’re going to fight with him and help take care of them and help spread the awareness of what he’s dealing with,” said Everhart.
