FCSN debuted our first published handbook in April. We designed our handbook to assist firefighters, EMS personnel and their family members diagnosed with cancer. It provides easy access to answers to questions, articles, and testimonials that address some of the basic concerns that surround any cancer diagnosis. The handbook is meant to be used with other resources provided by the FCSN, including our Badge-to-Badge Mentor Program and our unique toolbox. Our intention is that these three resources combined will work to address the social, professional, and practical needs of firefighters diagnosed with cancer, and that with each resource, a diagnosee will have a starting point to strategize and prepare for the battle that lies ahead.
