Cancer is the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths among fire fighters today.

The 1.3 million active fire fighters across the United States and Canada face the harsh reality that they are likely to receive a cancer diagnosis because of their heroic service.

In 2023, 72% of International Association of Fire Fighters member line-of-duty deaths were due to occupational cancer.

Fire fighters have a 9% higher risk of being diagnosed with cancer and a 14% higher risk of dying from cancer than the general population.

The World Health Organization has classified the occupation of fire fighting in the highest hazard category: Group 1: carcinogenic to humans.

WE BELIEVE IN TAKING UNCONVENTIONAL APPROACHES TO IGNITE REAL CHANGE.

We have dealt with the world’s deadliest cancer and have done so boldly and unapologetically. We are uniquely positioned to align with the brave men and women who take on the world’s toughest job to support their experience with all cancers.

Coping with a cancer diagnosis comes with many challenges. Fire fighters who are diagnosed with cancer as a result of occupational exposure deserve specialized support as they navigate these challenges.
