Firefighter Tyler Gilliam
Tillering Truck 11
Here's an update as of Tuesday, February 16, 2010.
Thank you everyone that helped out with casting a vote for one of my firefighters who has gone through a lot this past year with his personal health. I am disappointed that Tyler and Amber did not win the Dream Wedding contest but know that they will move on regardless, and will continue to love one another for the rest of their lives. You have to know that it is such an honor to know this guy. He's a fireman's fireman to me and many others. I don't care how bad the call was, Tyler is always spot on with his judgment and job skills whether it be working on the truck, water rescue on jet skiis, swift water rescue or USAR not to mention the basic firefighting skills.
I have no doubt that he and his wonderful fiance will be successful in any endeavor they seek together.
Top 10 Dream Couple™: Amber & Tyler (Dream Couple #533)
One of my Firefighters Tyler has been fighting cancer for the last year. He has been a firefighter for over a decade and has worked for the Santa Barbara County Fire for the last eight years. He is still being treated after two dangerous surgeries and has gone through a devastating period in his life and is not out of the woods yet. His girlfriend Amber has stuck by him through his ordeal and they recently became engaged.
Tyler and Amber have entered a Dream Wedding giveaway competition to win a fabulous free wedding. How fantastic would it be to help a brother and a very special couple have a dream wedding after all they have been through.
Contest Question Excerpt:
Tell us about the hardest thing you as a couple have had to face to date.
By far the hardest thing we have had to face as a couple is my battle with cancer over the last year. In February of 2009 I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. The diagnosis completely shattered our idyllic little life. We rent a small house on the West side of Santa Barbara where we live with our little pound puppy, Allie who we adopted in 2006 and is the joy of our life. I have a wonderful
career with the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, where I’m lucky to work with some of the best people in the world who are also some of my closest friends. (more…)
Thank you for your anticipated help! Let’s make this an overwhelming success, showing that firefighters take care of their own, because we care.
