A firefighter in training is battling more than fires. Timothy Richardson, a Cheektowaga teen is battling Leukemia and he's calling on his fellow firefighters to help in his fight.

Timmy is asking for t-shirts from fire departments around the country to wear a different one every day of his treatment. "Timmy is part of the Hy-View fire company's explorer program. He's so passionate about firefighting, he's grown up his whole life around it and plans on joining the fire service as soon as possible. He also plans on making a career out of it down the road," writes Timmy's mom on Facebook.

Shirts are pouring in. So many have already arrived they are now being sent to a Cheektowaga fire department because the hospital mail room is overflowing with close to 500 packages.

Lets help flood Timmy's hospital room with t-shirts from central New York fire departments. The address to send them is below. You can also follow Timmy's journey at Timmy's Battle on Facebook.
