I am signing because, My husband has been a FF for the the past 24 years. Early August of 2020, our lives were destroyed. My husband went to work, was diagnosed with cancer and passed away all in the same week. At the very young age of 49. Better prevention is desperately needed for these men and women.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I signed because of my husband. He spent 38 years as a volunteer fire fighter and was just recently diagnosed with multiple Myleoma and for my father who volunteered for over 40 years and passed from pancreatic cancer. Also, for all his fellow firefighters who are currently battling this horrific disease.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I lost my Dad in 2017 to a long tough battle of two forms of Leukemia due to chemical exposure from 35 years of service in the Houston Fire Department.

I signed because I am recently diagnosed with an occupational presumptive cancer. I feel I had a pretty clean career but we can always do more.
