Firefighter battling cancer receives birthday surprise

Randy Piticco and his wife were told that he had terminal lung cancer on their 20th wedding anniversary. So months later when his 61st birthday came around, Randy’s wife wanted to do something to lift his spirits. Marilyn told Huffington Post B.C. “He’d just had chemo this week, and when he has chemo he gets pretty bad, he can’t go out and he can’t have a crowd come in, so I just thought, ‘Let’s just see how many people I can gather to stand on the lawn and sing Happy Birthday.'” Much to her surprise the entire neighborhood showed up with friends, family and his Langley Township Firefighter colleagues. Marilyn said “He was so beautifully, genuinely touched. When he saw the video, he just cried.”
