Damien is married and has a two-year old son. Firefighting is more than a career to Pereira having wanted to be a Firefighter since he was a young boy. With local rehab not an option, Pereira and his family won’t spend time together on a normal schedule. Hardships will be both financial and emotional as Damien’s wife will reduce her work hours to care for her husband. The Damien Pereira Recovery Fund will assist the Pereira family with the financial challenges they face during extended rehab The Pereira’s reside in San Luis Obispo, California
