Americus coming together for sick firefighter

August 18, 2006

Americus - - The city of Americus is coming together to raise money for a firefighter who's battling cancer.

In 2003, 11 year Americus firefighter, 36 year old Scott Law was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2003.

He recently learned the tumor has expanded and is malignant.

He is no longer able to work as a firefighter and his wife has left her job to care for him. Now, his fellow firefighters are trying to raise money for the family.  

"He's part of our family. He's a good young man, aint but 36 years old, the fire department always does things for people in the community and he'd be right with us if we were doing something for somebody else," says Fire Chief Allen Erkhart.

You can help by attending a silent auction and family fun day tomorrow beginning at 11 a.m. There will be food, a yard sale, and a cake walk. Then at 7 p.m., live bands will perform.
