After Paramedic Firefighter Schmitz retired from the Albuquerque Fire Department he, not being satisfied with simply siting at home, went back to school. During that time his eldest daughter was diagnosed with cancer and the family focussed on that daunting battle. Post treatment his daughter, having all her immunity wiped out by chemotherapy, needed a “clean room” environment to minimize her risk of getting very sick while her immunity recovered. Random Acts banded together to get her all new furniture, new mattress, air purifying filters, new paint, sealant for the windows, and everything else she needed in order to bring her home. It was such an amazing day being able to do something for one of our own brothers and his family.
