First Responder Friday: FDNY Firefighter Matt McDevitt

NEW YORK (WABC) -- This week's First Responder Friday honor comes to us from Vicki Raffetto for her nephew FDNY Firefighter Matt McDevitt who is battling a rare cancer.

The 32-year-old's treatments have limited his workouts, so his wife Jackie along with family and friends are working out #McDevittStrong.

They are asking that you dedicate your Friday Workout to the hashtag #McDevittStrong.

McDevitt also got a special message from The Rock!

The McDevitt's have two children under the age of 2. Matt's wife Jackie works as a health practitioner at Northwell Health. We thank them both for their service for others.

You can find out more about McDevitt's battle at his GoFundMe page.


Whether it's helping out, celebrating a milestone of service, or a first responder in need -- we want to hear about it!

Tag Amy Freeze on Facebook, on Twitter @AmyFreeze7 or on Instagram @AmyFreeze to nominate someone for First Responder Friday.
