Illinois Family Battling Cancer Receives Free Roof Repair from Local Contractor


Share post:

TINLEY PARK, IL – In the midst of their 6-year-old son Joshua’s courageous battle against a rare kidney cancer, the Tinley Park community has rallied around his family in a heartwarming way. Thanks to the kindness and generosity of local contractor Daniel from Daniel’s Home Remodeling, Joshua’s family recently received a much-needed new roof for their home.

Daniel, who has a special needs child of his own, refused any payment, covering 100% of the materials and labor needed to repair the family’s roof. This act of selflessness ensured that Joshua’s home would be safe and secure during his treatment, providing some much-needed peace of mind for the family during this challenging time.

The incredible gesture was made possible through Project Fire Buddies, a nonprofit organization that has grown to encompass more than 30 different departments, including Tinley Park, Bourbonnais, Orland Park, and others. Joshua, who is a member of the Tinley Park Fire Department Firefighter’s Association chapter, had previously received support from the Fire Buddies, who organized a video call with his favorite wrestling star, Bill Goldberg.

Joshua’s journey began in May 2022 when he was diagnosed as a preschooler with Wilms tumor, a rare kidney cancer that predominantly affects children. Doctors discovered a tumor on his left kidney and promptly removed it. Joshua has since gone through six rounds of radiation and nine months of chemotherapy as part of his treatment.

Daniel’s Home Remodeling can be reached at 708-267-2090 for free estimates on roofing repairs.
