Three-year-old honorary FDNY FF Trucker Dukes in hospice for pain management

Three-year-old Trucker Dukes of Hawaii, who was made an honorary firefighter by the FDNY for his brave fight against neuroblastoma, is in hospice for pain management after 2 years of cancer treatments.

“We have officially enrolled him in hospice to help with the pain,” said Trucker’s mom Shauna Dukes. “Please know that we are not giving up. We are still consulting with integrative┬ámedicine doctors, treating him at home, enjoying all the sweet moments we have together.”
