Welcome

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.
