Editor’s Note:

Cancer is very real for us as we have had many firefighters and friends not in the Public Safety profession have this terrible disease. Some have survived and were cured, others passed away.  It affects all of us.  These kids and young adults can’t really comprehend as adults may try to and helping them through their journeys and finding a cure is what it is all about.  Please give today and join the fight by being Strong Against Cancer. – LR Swenson
