Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide firefighters that have cancer the chance to take an all-expense paid vacation with their family, giving them the opportunity to escape the stress, trauma, and financial impact that undergoing the treatment of cancer creates while involving the community and raising cancer awareness to the public.

Submit Nominations for 2016 Recipients

If you are viewing this page, chances are you know a firefighter who has been diagnosed with cancer.  What better way to show your support and boost his or her morale than by nominating them for a "getaway" from cancer!  Recipients from all over the country are eligible for nomination.  Click on the following link to fill out an application:  Nominate a Firefighter
