Fundraiser for Captain Wayne Braun

OSFM | Jun 27, 2016

Captain Wayne Braun from Manhattan Fire Dept. has been diagnosed with advanced stage cancer. He was diagnosed locally, did a follow up with KU Medical Center and then went to MD Anderson in Houston for a second opinion. He has decided to do his treatment with MD Anderson. They have set him up to aggressively treat his cancer with chemo every two weeks from now until August and then they will do another scan to see if the cancer has shrunk to the point they can perform surgery to remove it.

Please keep Wayne and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

The IAFF Local 2275 union here has set up a fundraiser and a GoFundMe account to help raise money to assist with out-of-pocket  expenses for Wayne and his family.
