We help firefighters and their families cope with cancer
Cancer is the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths
for America’s firefighters.
Since 2005, the nonprofit Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN)
has provided assistance and badge-to-badge mentoring for cancerstricken
fire/EMS members and their families. FCSN also delivers
firefighter cancer awareness and prevention training nationwide.
If you receive a cancer diagnosis, FCSN can start helping
immediately with an FCSN cancer-support toolbox. FCSN’s
signature toolbox is full of tested, proven resources to help
firefighters and their families cope with the cancer diagnosis,
treatment, and recovery phases. We’ll send it to you right away,
free of charge.
Next, FCSN offers free badge-to-badge support to fire/EMS
members and their immediate families. We have more than 130
peer-support mentors – nearly all are firefighters and paramedics
who are cancer survivors themselves. Many of our mentors started
their relationship with FCSN with a phone call or email seeking
assistance for themselves. Now they’re giving back by helping others
through the process.
If you have received a cancer diagnosis, please call our toll-free
number – 1-866-994-FCSN (3276) – or use our online assistancerequest
link firefightercancersupport.org/request-assistance/.
One call, one click of a “send” button is all is takes to rally your
brother and sister firefighters. We can help!
