HELP COLUMBUS FIREFIGHTER MARK RINE RAISE MONEY NEEDED FOR HIS CANCER EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH PROGRAMS TO REACH MORE 1ST RESPONDERS IN OHIO

MARK-RINE-HELPMARK

 

“I promise to give everything to fight skin cancer in Ohio.”

Melanoma will eventually get the better of me but for as long as I live, I will devote my time educating firefighters and young adults about skin cancer. There is good news. With prevention and early detection, skin cancer can be avoided. For firefighters, training and legislation can also reduce their cancer risk and reverse a fatal trend. Will you help me?

SAVING FIREFIGHTERS’LIVES & THEIR BENEFITS

Mark Rine Firehouse Training

Mark Rine has conducted 100s of Firehouse Training sessions reaching thousands of Ohio firefighters. 

SKNLUV is the only organization in Ohio providing on-site cancer awareness training, prevention, and early detection to firefighters and first responders. A minimum of 9 Group-1 carcinogens are present in every building fire and these conditions dramatically increase the risk of melanoma and other cancers. Regrettably, firefighters are still denied worker’s comp and benefits because of some cancers.
