FCSN is proud to announce that Barasch McGarry Law Firm has become a Sustaining Partner. For nearly 3 decades, the law firm of Barasch & McGarry has been at the forefront of strengthening and protecting the right to secure compensation for injured NYC firefighters, EMT’s, and police officers. Among the firm’s proudest accomplishments are the rights they have secured for thousands of FDNY, NYPD, and EMS workers who came down with illnesses in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks.
“It is a privilege to support the wonderful work being done by the Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN),” said Michael Barasch, Managing Partner. “My law firm is honored to represent firefighters from all over the country who responded to the World Trade Center on and after 9/11. Thousands of them, from all 50 states, have developed 9/11-related cancers after exposure to the WTC toxins and hundreds of them have died from their illnesses.”
Firefighter occupational cancer is the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths in the fire service. Since 2005, FCSN has provided assistance and one-on-one mentoring to thousands of cancer-stricken firefighters and their families. FCSN also delivers extensive firefighter cancer awareness and prevention training nationwide.
“FCSN is proud and grateful to have Barasch McGarry Law Firm join our Sustaining Partner family. They join almost a dozen other companies that provide the financial support and assurance that our mission will sustain and support our vision, to be the global leader in firefighter cancer support, awareness, and education,” said CEO and President, Bryan Frieders.
