Boston Local 718 Firefighter and Family Cancer Foundation
Dan Ranahan is a Boston firefighter who was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma in the Fall of 2020. The support he and his family received from Boston firefighters, friends, family, colleagues, and complete strangers was profound.
Dan created the Boston Local 718 Firefighter and Family Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises money to support members of the Boston Fire Department who are diagnosed with occupational cancer.
Our goal is to provide both emotional and financial support to firefighters and their families as they navigate through treatments, appointments, etc.
