If you are a member of one of our great local fire departments, I hope you can help out this young man. All his life he wanted to become a firefighter, but cancer has got in the way.

According to WROC in Rochester NY, 21-year-old Johnathan Davis has an inoperable brain tumor and one request. He wants a fire department patch from every department in New York State.

At first, the idea may have seemed unrealistic, but Johnathan's mother happened to run into Rochester Lt. Gov. Bob Duffy and through social media, the word spread. Now as he fights for his life, Johnathan's dream may soon become a reality.

"He's always been my hero from the moment this all started. I couldn't be more proud of him," said Laurie Davis.

It's a lofty goal and I'm sure he will get there. We encourage anybody that happens to see this to contact their neighboring departments and their own departments certainly and send patches to Johnathan.

You can send fire department patches to:
