The Mission of the Maryland State Fitemen's Association Cancer Support Network is to help Volunteer Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services personnel and their families who are dealing with cancer by providing them with positive efforts through support as well as to share with them the resources needed to be a survivor.
Our History ....
In 2011, Past President David Lewis initiated the Cancer Support Network Committee. He was very impressed with the mission of the Firefighter Cancer Network and decided this was something that could benefit the members of MSFA. The Committee consists of those currently dealing with cancer, cancer survivors and caregivers.
Support is offered to those fighting this disease by matching them with someone who has survived or is dealing or a caregiver to someone with this particular type of cancer. Sometimes all it takes is to talk with someone who has experienced similar circumstances, be it family member, friend or committee member. We are currently in the process of developing a matching database and if you are interested in becoming a "Cancer Coach", please contact us. We will be happy to discuss the process and answer any questions you may have.
Please do not hesitate to contact any members of the Committee and if you know of someone in your or another department who would benefit from the services that can be provided by the MSFA Cancer Support Network Committee.(ALL interactions of the committee are kept in the strictest confidence.)
How can you help?...

The Resource Kit is a way for the patient/support person or family to keep track of all medical information, such as appointments, medications, doctor's information, etc Also, included in this Resource kit is a journal and other important trinkets that will help keep the patient's information at their finger tips.
