Elmer Fire Department Raising Money for Boy Battling Cancer

Last Edited:
ELMER, N.J. -

After meeting a three-year-old battling cancer this weekend and making him an honorary firefighter, one South Jersey fire department is going one step further to help their new friend.

Benjamin Graham has been battling cancer since he was born and has always dreamed of being a firefighter when he grew up.

To make that dream come true the Elmer Fire Department brought him into the station and showed him the ropes.

Now they are trying help out their little hero one step further by selling Benjamin Strong wristbands for $5 each to help raise money for his medical expenses.

To get one of your own, you can find the Elmer Fire Department's tent at the 2017 New Jersey Fireman's Convention happening in Wildwood this weekend or you can contact them through their Facebook page.
