My name is Greg Charrier and I am a Firefighter/Paramedic in Mandeville La. I am also the Eastern Louisiana Representative for the Firefighters Cancer Support Network. We are a nonprofit organization who helps with Firefighters who develop Cancer, over there career. Little is known to the general public, but Firefighters, who protect the public, also have,60% more of a chance of developing Cancer over the general population. Our goal is to educate Firefighters across the nation about the high risk they are exposed to every time we fight a fire or deal with any hazardous material. Not only do we deal in education, but we also offer Support via mentorship programs for the firefighter and there family. The mentorship program, allows the firefighter a chance to have other firefighters help them through the process of treatments, and what to expect.
We, the Louisiana Representatives, are hosting a 1st annual cook off fund raiser in Mandeville/Covington area. We are asking for help with local business for sponsorship to help aid in the fund raiser. We will be looking to raise money through then cook off itself, but also, offer a raffle of many different items. All sponsors will have their name printed on a banner, and given the package they chose. We are also looking for teams to participate in the cook off as well. If you have any questions, please, feel free to contact me.
