Michael Wise and Bryan Boyd of the Bristol, Virginia Professional Firefighters Association are heading to Richmond to meet with local lawmakers to discuss cancer prevention and join others in the “Walk The Line” cancer walk on Tuesday. Wise says the walk is to push for legislative action and remember those who’ve died from cancer while on the job. In addition Boyd says there are more synthetics, more plastics, more chemicals and when those things burn those chemicals get released we absorb it and we inhale it.
