Mission Statement of the Cancer Support Network

The mission of the Maryland State Firemen's Association Cancer Support Network is to help Volunteer Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services and Auxiliary 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 MSFA Cancer Support Network Committee is trying to raise awareness for Maryland Volunteer Fire, Rescue and Emergency Medical Services personnel who are facing the battle with cancer. 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.

If you would like to sponsor a MSFA cancer Support Network Resource Kit, please complete the information below and send your donation of $75.00 to MSFA cancer Support Network, 424 Greenland Beach Road, Baltimore, MD 21226. (Note in the memo field: Resource Kit and make checks payable for to MSFA.)

We are also putting together a resource guide of state wide business that would donate or discount their services to include the following: lawn care, heating and air conditioning, house cleaning, spa services such as manicure, pedicure, massages, hair (wigs) and make-up as well as volunteers who would assist with picking up groceries or prescription, transportation, pet caretaker, run errands, etc. If you know someone in your area that would like to participate in our program, please have them contact any of the above committee members.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the cancer Support Network Committee, please contact the Cancer Support Network.
