Frankfort Community Comes Together to Support Fire Chief 

For the people of Frankfort, Fire Chief Earl Anderson is the kind of man that won’t let you down.He’s been a firefighter for fifty years and those who know him best will tell you he’d give anything to help others.”He usually is first on scene, he usually helps out you know so much,” said his daughter, Angela Norton.But these days, Anderson is the one who needs help.In September, he underwent quadruple bypass surgery, then a few weeks later he got more devastating news, he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer.Anderson is now undergoing chemotherapy treatment and is splitting his time between being home and traveling to hospitals in boston and portland.It’s been tough for his family, especially his daughter, Angela. The woman he affectionately calls his little buddy is always by his side when he seeks treatment.”Seeing him, he’s probably lost a good 60 to 80 pounds and seeing him right now is very hard but I have to stay strong,” she said.Since word got out of Anderson’s illness, the community has reached out to the family, including Selectman Evelyn Adams who calls anderson a vital part of the Frankfort volunteer fire department.Adams told us she wants to wish Earl well and hopes he’ll be back to serving the people of Frankfort.It’s that hope that keeps Anderson and his family going during this difficult time.This Saturday there will be a benefit dinner for Anderson at the Texas Roadhouse in Bangor from 11 am – 3 pm.
