Tony Stefani - Firefighting and the Link to Cancer

Thursday Luncheon Speaker

Thursday, August 10th, 2017 - 12:10pm

Tony Stefani used to be a firefighter. He is also a cancer patient. The two, he believes, are linked.
Stefani was a firefighter in his native San Francisco for 28 years, nearly half of them as captain of a rescue squad.  But the profession he loved may have nearly cost him his health. He breathed all kinds of substances, from the diesel fumes of fire engines to smoke laced with flame retardants in people's homes. That contact, Stefani believes, led to his diagnosis of transitional cell carcinoma in 2001. He soon learned that hundreds of active and retired firefighters also had various kinds of cancer.
