Currently in Virgina, firefighters have to prove they got cancer from firefighting and are being denied job related cancer claims. We are trying to change the state code to shift the burden of proof from firefighters to the employers, who must prove it was not job-related.
The change to the law will help doctors, lawyers, insurance providers and union representatives avoid wrangling over individual cases so firefighters can receive benefits to fight cancer quickly.
This article about Texas firefighters shows that even with stronger cancer presumption laws on the books, they will still shamefully try to deny our benefits.
Contact your local Virginia state representatives to support upcoming firefighter cancer presumption bills.
