Firefighter cancer nonprofit’s ‘A Celebration of Survivors’ gala marks 10th anniversary of service and support for firefighters and their families

The Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) invites you to attend our 10th anniversary “A Celebration of Survivors” gala dinner and fundraiser on Saturday, November 7, 2015, at the Long Beach Hilton.

Since 2005, FCSN has helped thousands of firefighters and their families cope with cancer. We hope you’ll join us for a memorable evening with cocktails, dinner, silent and live auctions, and special acoustic performances by John Waite and Risa Binder.
