What's New at Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation
The Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation team donates their time to assist First Responders, firefighters and their families when faced with a cancer or occupational disease diagnosis. Whether it is the personalized action plan call or a trained advocate ear to offer resource refferal guidance, the community we serve is facing rapidly growing cancer numbers because of their service to others.
We value every dollar donated and stretch each responsibly to teach individual and local fire service advocacy, help build local business connections to support Fire Departments and work tirelessly to improve fire service best practices for improved health and safety while encouraging personal responsibility and healthy lifestyle on and off duty.
Your donations also support cancer prevention and awareness education and direct fire service training to reduce exposure to cancer causing toxins. An extensive team of medical, science and legal credentialed experts are available for assistance and donate their time to FFCF programming. Research projects currently underway are addressing new personal protection technologies to reduce cancer causing exposures, early disease detection testing and lifestyle changes needed to reduce firefighter deaths from cancer.
A new marketplace model is being developed and corporate participation is sought with accompanying education to enhance fire service application of health and safety equipment used by the industry.
Look for new website interactions and cancer family programs for 2019. The Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation is grateful to our business supporters but primary funding remains via direct donations. Please consider supporting this organization as the 15th year of work continues to save lives, support fire families and we work to extinguish firefighter cancer.
