Hugs, love and support were shown Saturday as Farmersville and surrounding communities turned out in full force for retired Josephine Fire Chief Cameron Brooks.
Brooks, who needs a liver transplant due to an autoimmune liver disease, spent many years supporting surrounding departments and that help was given back to him tenfold last weekend.
Brook’s journey with his health started long before his official diagnosis in 2017 and he resigned in January 2018 after 15 years of being fire chief for Josephine. As a volunteer chief who didn’t get paid for the job, Cam found other ways to financially support his family including being an animal control officer for Collin County, for Farmersville and for the city of McKinney.
