How much it has changed my life style and how many people it has effected that I know. How my family has had to make sacrifices to be there for me.

You find out what the true meaning of how much your family loves you. How people that you never met will reach out to help. How a community will come together to help a firefighter who was in need.

Just be there for my family and myself. Lend an ear or just offer any support.
