Retired Providence Fire Chief Denied Accidental Disability Pension

According to an article published by the Providence Journal, retired Fire Chief George S. Farrell has been denied an accidental-disability pension. Providence Journal reports that Superior Court Judge Sarah Taft-Carter upheld the decision to deny Farrell an accidental-disability pension.

Farrell asked the court to pay him the pension because of his illness, myelogenous leukemia. Myelogenous leukemia is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. While symptoms may vary, depending on the type of blood cell affected, the most common symptoms include fever, bone pain, lethargy, fatigue, pale skin, frequent infections, shortness of breath and easy bruising.

Farrell was diagnosed with the condition in 2007, according to the article. He was the fire chief from April 2007 to Dec. 10, 2010.
