A car wash fundraiser was held in Shawnee Saturday for 1-year-old Marshal Moreno, son of Shawnee firefighter Mykel Moreno. The child has been diagnosed with stage three liver cancer.
Organizers said more than $7,000 was raised during the event Saturday.
The Shawnee Fire Foundation and Local 206, with help from donations, other sponsors and many volunteers from Shawnee area organizations, made the event a success.
Marshal is currently at OU Children’s Hospital and there is a possibility of him being transferred out of state to receive more treatment.
Moreno has been with the Shawnee Fire Department for six months.
In addition to the car wash, a benefit bank account has been set up for the family at Arvest.
