Between 40 and 50 firefighters visited patients at the hospital in a fun hair-shaving ceremony of solidarity.

The fire department was inspired by Orange City firefighter John Voris’ 15-year-old daughter Saylor, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia and is scheduled to undergo a bone marrow transplant.

Some firefighters also donated blood and/or platelets while others passed out honorary badges and hats to children batting cancer and other illnesses and injuries.
