Brett McPherson of Livermore has been a hero to many as a paramedic for twenty years in both McLean County and in Owensboro. He is battling colon cancer for the second time, and now he needs us. There are many fundraisers set up to help offset medical expenses and to support the family.

Mcpherson Family

The McLean County community is rallying around Brett McPherson. When his colon cancer returned for a second time the family was devastated. But, Brett was ready to take it head-on with the same bravery he shows as a paramedic. A recent get-together to celebrate the 4th of July showed that he also wants to live life to the fullest. Spending time with so many family and friends was exactly what the doctor ordered.
