Hello, my name is Marion Jaikowski, a proud 20-year member of the L.A. County Fire Department. Currently, I work as a fire prevention engineer serving 17 local South Bay cities on new construction life-safety issues. On my days off, I love to travel to exotic places and experience different cultures and history.
Another important role I have undertaken is mentoring people affected by cancer through the Firefighter Cancer Support Network. As a two-time survivor of both thyroid and breast cancer, I have firsthand experience of how it can affect not only your life, but also that of your family and friends.
I love helping people in the fire service and their family members navigate the issues that cancer brings to their lives. I also like being able to give them hope and inspiration that they can still beat this disease. I have been fortunate to be inspired and love to pay it forward.
