Terminally Ill Retired Sacramento Firefighter Battles for Workers’ Comp
SACRAMENTO -- Once you’ve been told you’re going to die and when you just don’t make the same kind of plans other people do. "Well, I’m sleeping in the living room, as you can see, on a hospital bed. That’s just in case I have to get taken somewhere," said Don Ban. Ban spent his working life fighting fire for the City of Sacramento. He was an engineer and was specially trained to handle hazardous material spills. He was on the front line, fighting some of the city’s biggest blazes.
