Wister FD seeking help for cancer victim

Matt Duschel

The Wister Volunteer Fire Department is asking for help as they come together to support one of their own.

Matt Duschel is a 22-year-old father, husband, and volunteer firefighter for Wister. He was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage 4 sarcoma several months ago and has begun his fight.

A GoFundMe was set up by the department to help with medical expenses, time spent out of work, hotel rooms, food, gas, and other costly bills that he will incur while battling cancer.

There is also a benefit planned for him on March 20, according to the most recent post on the Wister Fire Department’s Facebook page:

Close to $2,500 has been raised so far through the GoFundMe campaign.
