WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Fire Department (WFD) said on Facebook on Friday that firefighter Curt Mohr is “nearing the end” in a battle with cancer.

“It is with heavy hearts that we share Curt’s battle with cancer is nearing the end,” WFD said in the Facebook post. “He and his family have chosen to keep him comfortable in his home for the remainder of his journey. We are extremely grateful for the constant outpouring of prayers and support. We respectfully ask that his final days are spent surrounded by his immediate family. Much love, Gina, Andrew, Cory, and Joshua.”

Mohr has dedicated almost 24 years to the city of Wichita and WFD. In 2018, he was diagnosed with an aggressive cancerous brain tumor.

WFD is helping raise funds for the Mohr family. A GoFundMe has been set up, but the fund was established with the Wichita Federal Credit Union (WFCU).
