The Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society presented the first cheque of their $15,000 gift to the BC Cancer Foundation on March 31.

These local heroes go above and beyond their call of duty to improve the lives of cancer patients from the Fraser Valley region who use the services at the BC Cancer Agency's Fraser Valley Centre.

This gift follows the Surrey Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society’s long legacy of giving, with more than $31,000 donated to the BC Cancer Foundation since 2002. The Society’s contributions have supported breast cancer research, equipment purchases at the BC Cancer Agency's Fraser Valley Centre and other priority research initiatives that will have the most promise to improve cancer outcomes for British Columbians.
