Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro swore in two new honorary firefighters on May 31, 2016. Trucker Dukes, 3, and River Laurence, 4, are both fighting stage 4 neuroblastoma in NYC, far from their homes in Hawaii and Texas

‘”It’s inspirational to me that they want to be a part of the FDNY, that they’re brave as they are at such a young age, to be fighting against this life threatening disease as many of our members are.” Nigro said during a ceremony at the department’s Fire Academy on Randalls Island,’ reported Chelsia Rose Marcius and Leonard Greene in the New York Daily News.
