From Patient to Advocate: Fighting Cancer and Water Pollution

Having triumphed over their own personal battles with cancer, a resilient group of young survivors from Florida set out on a mission to uncover the alarming rates of disease and pollution that plagued their community. Their investigation led them to a shocking revelation: Three operational military bases and more than a dozen industrial facilities had been negligently contaminating water sources, posing an imminent threat to the health of wildlife, fisheries, food sources, military families, children, and nearby communities.  And so, Fight for Zero, the nonprofit organization, was born, driven by an ardent desire to spare other families from the anguish that accompanies disease.

Submit Your Health Information to the

Fight for Zero Disease Registry

Cancer survivors began gathering health information from the public to increase understanding of the effects of toxic exposure on human health. This data has supported communities in environmental research, contributed to medical guidelines on toxic exposures, promoted disease prevention efforts, conducted assessments of environmental health risks, and influenced environmental health policies.
