Fernando Ordonez is a firefighter paramedic for the City of Miami. He is assigned to downtown station 1 on the Hazardous Materials Team, as the HazMat driver. Fernando is 33 years old, married to his supportive wife, Carmen. They have a two year old son, Andres.
Fernando known to all as Fernie, is a compassionate and caring guy, always there when one is in need. Fernie has served his community for over a decade, and now he is in need of our help.
In December 2014, Fernie began to experience excrutiating stomach pain. While seeking medical help at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami Beach he found that he had malignant ascites. After doing an endoscopy they found he had cancer cells from the biopsy taken.
Within a few days from the onset of his symptoms he was diagnosed with stage 4 gastric cancer that had spread to the peritoneaum. Fernie is fighting this cancer with the positive attitude and strong faith that he is known for. He is on his third chemotherapy treatment.
We are asking for your support to help Fernie in his fight with cancer. Any amount of donation is highly appreciated. It will help with the mounting expenses and medical bills.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and God bless.
