Belvidere firefighter helps bring special Christmas to cancer patient

Posted:
BELVIDERE (WREX) -

Christmas miracles can come in many different forms. But the common denominator is people helping people.

That's the case in Belvidere. 

Firefighter Todd Winnie has created a special bond with cancer patient Melissa Re. When Winnie posted on Facebook that he'd like to help her this Christmas, others responded in a big way. 

"We raised quite a bit of money, gifts — approximately $2,500 worth of donations and everything in less than a week," Winnie said. 

Winnie became friends of Re's back in 2011. He donated to the local Relay for Life in her honor.
