About Code 3 for a Cure:
The Code 3 for a Cure Foundation conducts an Annual Mission of Hope and Honor in which a team of firefighter/cancer survivors drive a fire engine across America to share their personal cancer experiences and to encourage early cancer screenings among firefighters and the general public. The fire engine carries a memorial fire bell on an empty seat that signifies the loss of a firefighter to cancer. The names of fallen firefighters are collected from various fire departments throughout the journey, and at the completion of the Mission a memorial fire bell service is conducted at the Los Angeles Fire Department. Code 3 for a Cure also grants the requests of terminally ill firefighters who want to ride on the fire engine one more time to encourage fellow firefighters to stay alert of the warning signs of cancer. A main goal of the Foundation is to provide financial relief to firefighters diagnosed with cancer who are facing a financial hardship. You can read about cancer's effect effect on firefighters on the Foundation's website, www.code3foracure.org/stats.html.
