DENVER (WSVN) — A Denver firefighter who lost his battle with cancer received a tearful and heartfelt goodbye as he was being escorted to donate his organs.

Family, friends, hospital staff and fellow firefighters gathered Saturday to watch as 31-year-old Cody Mooney was escorted down the hall of Littleton Adventist Hospital to have his organs donated after he lost his “courageous fight against an aggressive tumor.”

South Metro Fire Rescue shared a video of the somber scene.

“Saving lives even after his last breath,” he said.

Mooney leaves behind a wife and their four children. Mooney’s wife is also due to give birth in just a few weeks.
