Fundraising to Benefit 9-11 Survivors


 
 

Alan J. Azzara, JD, EMT-P | | Thursday, August 12, 2010


The Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation has launched the “Save Our Survivors” campaign to provide portable air purification systems to ailing 9-11 survivors. Fire departments are being asked to organize fund raising events to help their fellow responders who are overwhelmed by their illnesses. The goal is $250,000 to purchase 500 desperately needed air purification systems. These systems will ease the struggle and improve the quality of life for those American heroes who continue to suffer from their Ground Zero experience. Donations are needed by 9-11-2010, the 10th anniversary of this tragedy. Contact the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation at (866) 411-3323 or FFCancer@aol.com for more information. The Foundation educates first responders about on-the-job cancer risks and assists those who are victims of cancer.
