Fundraiser: Carney Strong Initiative Mug
Josh Carney, Battalion Chief at Midway Fire Rescue in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina, was 41 years old when he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma in June 2017. This aggressive cancer claimed Josh’s life less than four months later. While he understood the well-known risks of being a firefighter, Carney and his family did not understand the hidden dangers of firefighter occupational cancer. His diagnosis stemmed from his more than 25-year career as a firefighter.
To continue Josh’s legacy, his family has made it their mission to raise awareness of firefighter occupational cancer and assist other firefighters in getting the resources they need.
The Carney Strong Initiative assists fire departments throughout the country with occupational cancer prevention through education and the donation of decontamination supplies. Their focus is on smaller fire departments in suburban and rural locales comprised of volunteer, combination, and career staffing. Their purpose is to help combat occupational cancer to ensure that firefighters go home to their family, so they don't suffer at the hands of this dreadful disease.
By purchasing a Carney Strong Initiative Mug you are donating 100% of its proceeds to Carney Strong Initiative which will directly impact the amount of decontamination supplies they are able to supply to firefighters in the field.
