A GoFundMe account has been established for an Oneonta Firefighter/Paramedic fighting brain cancer.

According to the fundraising page, during his shift on January 22, 2019, he began  to exhibit confusion and had a headache that had progressively gotten worse.  A MRI scan revealed the worst possible scenario, a Brain Tumor.

 A short time later Rex had surgery to attempt to remove the brain tumor. The majority of the tumor was removed during surgery but microscopic cells remain that could not be removed. He will begin to receive radiation and chemotherapy as a treatment plan to attempt to manage the portion of the tumor that surgeons were unable to remove.

Rex has served the public for a large majority of his life through the fire service,  and also works as a Paramedic with Blount EMS Ambulance Service.
