    Sometimes Heros need saving too! Lieutenant Homer Salinas from Mission Fire Department is up against the biggest fight of his life battling kidney cancer. Homer has always put others before himself spending over 25 years saving lives as a firefighter. He has done such a great job serving his community that he inspired his son, Omar Salinas to follow his footsteps and become a firefighter for the City of Mission as well. Homer also has a daughter, Samantha Salinas, and another son Ray David Salinas that also aspires to be a firefighter. Homer has been married to his high school sweetheart, Nereida Salinas for 28 years and is a proud Grandfather of 8 grandkids. In December 2017 what seemed to feel like a stomach virus, sent Homer to the hospital. It was discovered that he had Clear Cell Renal Carcinoma.
