Thank you for visiting,

The Retired Professional Fire Fighters Cancer Fund Inc. is a non profit 501(C)3 organization committed to raising funds for cancer research programs. Our funds are allocated to established programs that seek to impact those cancers that have a higher occurence rates among fire fighters. Although we focus on “Fire Fighter Cancers”, everyone will benefit from our efforts because as we all know cancer does not discriminate.

TO DONATE: Use the "DONATE" button on the upper right corner of this page.

Every person affiliated with The Retired Professional Fire Fighters Cancer Fund provides in kind service. All board members and those who assist us donate their time. No one receives a salary or stipend. The Organization has no paid employees. Also, the Organization does not use any professional fundraiser groups to raise money. This allows us to minimize our expenses and maximize our research grants to worthy cancer research programs.

NO OCCUPATION IS MORE ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY CANCER - THAN THAT OF BEING A PROFESSIONAL FIRE FIGHTER
Dear Bothers & Sisters, no occupation hears the words "YOU HAVE CANCER" more than Professional Fire Fighters. In fact 60% of Line of Duty Deaths are the result of occupational cancer. The sole mission of The Retired Professional Fire Fighters Cancer Fund is to raise funds for established, promising cancer research. We focus on those cancers where there is a higher incidence among Fire Fighters when compared to the general population. Since 2010 we have raised and donated over $152,000. NO ONE involved with this organization receives any salary or stipend. We raise the money - we donate the money. Although great strides have been made in the research labs - much more needs to be done if we are to reverse or end this terrible trend. Cancer research can and will develop earlier detection methods, better treatment methods and an eventual cure. If we choose to do nothing - that's what we will get NOTHING! I am asking Fire Fighters across the globe to join in and lend a hand. Please consider holding a "GIVE CANCER THE BOOT" fund raiser. Pick a day, pick a location and pass your boots for cancer research. You have the boots, you have the people and hopefully you have the DESIRE to give hope to all Brothers & Sisters who have or who will be diagnosed. We will be happy to supply you with our "GIVE CANCER THE BOOT" signs. 100% of all money collected will go directly to world class cancer research centers - not to a third party charity or to a multi faceted organization where only a small percentage goes to cancer research but 100%. Everyone benefits -because as we all know cancer does not discriminate. You can email me at letsfirecancer@aol.com I HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON! Thank you! Stay Safe! Sincerely, Fraternally & Gratefully, Bill Newland, President (Retired I.A.F.F. Local 729) Read More...
