The Firefighter Cancer Foundation Australia (FCFA) is the first point of call for firefighters and their family members when diagnosis of cancer is received. Like cancer we do not discriminate and assist all firefighters, Volunteer, Permanents, Auxiliary etc.
FCFA promotes knowledge, awareness and advocacy for the firefighter diagnosed with cancer with an objective to help firefighters and their family members during this distressing time by providing ongoing support and assistance.
FCFA nationally registered charity (ABN 21 839 546 036) working for active and retired firefighters and their families.
Firefighters amongst us right now are suffering debilitating hardship and loneliness; embroiled in the fight of their lives battling cancer, and it is all done in silence.
However, a simple phone call from a firefighting colleague can make the world of difference and assist on the journey that is being diagnosed with cancer.
