Firefighter Frank Nunez is a member of the Itasca Fire Protection District and was diagnosed with cancer almost three years ago. Frank just turned 34 years-old. He was treated, and was thought to be cancer-free and returned to work. About six months later he discovered that cancer had recurred … and with a vengeance.

Recently, Frank was in the Intensive Care Unit and intubated, fighting for his life. Unfortunately the outcome is not looking good, and his family and fiancé will have to contend with any remaining costs and end of life expenses, as he enters hospice.

A gofundme fundraiser was set up stating …

“Frank is a warrior that always has a positive attitude and thinks about everyone besides himself, he is a true firefighter brother and a warrior through and through! We have started this to help his family and fiancé make ends meet and relieve the financial burden from them.”

Thursday, September 29, 2022, firefighters are meeting along with charity organizer group Pink Heals to “help support a brother firefighter,” according to fire department and fire scene photographer Tim Olk.
