Firefighters and Cancer
Most fire fighters have been touched by cancer (co-workers, family, and friends) in some way. It’s a problem that isn’t going away any time soon.
A common question among firefighters is “what can I do?” “How can I help?” In response to these questions, many fire service leaders have stepped up their efforts to provide support, education, and direction.
The staff at cancerbeast.com is part of the firefighter family. They have a special place in their hearts for firefighters.
The staff believes that the fire service has a greater role to play in community cancer prevention. They ask firefighters in every community to think outside the box.
