Picture from Fife Fire and Rescue Service

Fifers are being urged to help find a stem cell donor for a fireman with blood cancer. 49-year-old Gary Dall was diagnosed last month - and has been told he "urgently" needs a donor.

Fife Flyers head coach Todd Dutiaume, a former members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service as well as former Flyers forward Andy Samuel, who is still a member of the fire service, are urging fans of both teams to help out on Saturday in order to help local firefighter Gary, as well as others who are suffering from the same illness.

On Saturday evening members of Kirkcaldy Fire Station will be in attendance at Flyers game vs Edinburgh Capitals at Fife Ice Arena asking for your help by asking visitors for a small swab of saliva.

PLEASE NOTE

  • Volunteers need should be aged between 16-30.
  • Anyone wishing to help with this campaign cannot eat, drink, smoke or chew 30 mins prior.
  • You will also be asked for your GP information.

A small saliva sample is all it takes to join the stem cell register.

The appeal to help Gary - and others in need of stem cell donation - is being led by Group Manager Mark Bryce.

The SFRS has an award winning partnership with blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan and has already seen over 8,500 people sign up to the stem cell register which has resulted in 25 lives being saved.

GM Bryce, also based at Kirkcaldy Fire Station, said:

"Gary is a real hero who has an outstanding record when it comes to assisting and protecting communities.

"But he now needs a hero of his own and we are doing everything in our power to find that person.

"We will be out in force at the event this weekend - including many who are volunteering their own time in the hope of finding that miracle match.

"I would like to take this opportunity to ask our communities to please, please step forward to assist a firefighter who has contributed so much to others.

"Anyone who joins this life-saving register to help a complete stranger is also a real hero in our eyes."
