God Bless my Brother Firefighters..

I was a Firefighter and I now have a lung disease, drop foot, glaucoma, neck injury, low back injury, COPD and I'm on oxygen all the time. My immune system has now stopped working and I have started transfusion treatments that I will have ever 6 weeks the rest of my life.That limits almost everything I do. I have been in ICU 35 times since 2009 on a breathing machine. I miss my brother Firefighters everyday. If I could go back and change anything in my firefighting job. The only thing would be is to always WARE YOUR SCBA's. When I started FF in the early 80's thy didn't really require you to wear your scba's on car fires. You needed to be a smoke eater. I'm glade things have changed. This month I am to talk to a lung surgeon. Please pray. If you can help I need a full size van with a wheelchair lift. I am pretty much home bound for now. I would appreciate any help.

This has been very hard for me to ask for help, because going threw the maze of three years with no income waiting for my disability to come. I went threw some depression. My church has been a solid rock all threw this. I have realized why I become a Firefighter. I have a rescue mentality and I still want to do that, but I can't.

Love Jimbo
