The Byram Township Fire Department is asking the community to help a local hero in need. William (Will) Garcia was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic melanoma at just 34 years old.

Garcia is one of the firefighters the department says rarely misses a call and is here for the community in the brightest of days and darkest of hours.

He is a loving husband and a devoted father to his three kids.

A page was created to help pay for Garcia’s medical treatment and bills. In less than 24 hours, the community raised more than $27,000. That figure is now up to $94,662, just short of the $100,000 goal. To donate, visit the Help Will Garcia Beat Cancer GoFundMe page at
