Our Motivation

Firefighters have higher rates of cancer than the rest of us, according to a recent study by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. Cancers of the respiratory, digestive and urinary systems account for much of the reported cases, the study found. Firefighters account for double the reported cases of mesothelioma. Firefighting is a dangerous profession, and a growing body of research and data shows the contributions that job-related exposures have in chronic illnesses, such as cancer and heart disease. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently undertook two large studies focused on firefighter cancer and concluded that firefighters face a 9 percent increase in cancer diagnoses, and a 14 percent increase in cancer-related deaths, compared to the general population in the U.S

Every year, over 800,000 lives are lost to suicide. Globally, suicide is the second leading cause of death among people aged 15 to 29. Three times as many men die by suicide than women.*

Depression is one of the major risk factors for suicide. A lot of guys with depression experience thoughts of suicide at some point, but many of them don’t reach out – this needs to change. It is important to know that recovery from depression and suicidal thoughts is possible.

Depression consumes your day-to-day life and interferes with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun.

Early screening can save your life. Talk to your doctor about when you should get screened, or find out when to start screening. Either way… don’t DIY your prostate exam.
