Ignite Hope: Support for Firefighters' Health and Well-being
Welcome to the Ignite Hope: Support for Firefighters' Health and Well-being fundraiser, organized by the Eternal Flames Foundation. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with a burning passion to stand beside our firefighting heroes and their families during their toughest battles.
Firefighters bravely face the flames to protect our communities, but their battle doesn't end when the fires are extinguished. They are confronted with a higher risk of occupational illness and disease, as outlined in the Presumptive Law Chapter 607. This includes various forms of cancer and respiratory diseases that arise from their courageous service.
Our volunteer team is comprised of individuals who have walked this challenging path. We know firsthand the struggles of dealing with workers’ compensation, employer issues, and extensive paperwork. We've experienced the emotional toll of seeing a loved one fight occupational cancer or illness.
We are committed to ensuring that no ONE fights alone and no ONE is forgotten. Through this fundraiser, we aim to:
- Educate firefighters and their families about occupational illness and disease, helping them understand their risks and rights.
- Provide Resources that are instrumental in helping firefighters and their families navigate the complexities of medical care, workers' compensation, and support services.
- Advocate for changes at the departmental and policy levels to prioritize the safety and health of firefighters.
- Support emotionally and financially, the families dealing with the heavy burden of a loved one’s occupational illness.
