Not too long ago I wrote a blog post on a particular firefighter, Gavin Wright: https://jennnadams.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/firefighter-down/ A few days ago I learned that he had lost his battle with cancer, he was only 33 years old. My continued thoughts and prayers are going out to his family.
The Wright family needs help in paying medical expenses. If you would like to help out you can contact the Little Rock Fire Department where Gavin worked: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Little-Rock-Fire-Department/219704218055955 The family has also set up an account at First Security back in Arkansas to receive donations in Gavin’s name.
You may also make a donation in Gavin Wright’s name to the Fire Fighters Memorial Fund or American Cancer Society.
