Our mission is to improve the quality of life for Floridians and future generations by fighting for zero pollution in our Florida communities.
Cancer Survivors Fight Back
Our grassroots organization was founded by a group of cancer survivors and their families who began research into Florida's carelessness with its environmental resources. We learned that the lack of standards and accountability had affected human life, marine survival, wildlife, and water quality. Each of our experiences against life-altering diseases transformed into a strong desire to take action toward saving lives.
We must restore and maintain our waterways. Sewer discharges, biosolids, coastal erosion, herbicide spraying into rivers, increasing development, poor infrastructure, and cancer-causing contamination are just a few of the challenges we're facing in Florida.
Fight For Zero strives for zero pollution to protect children's health and vulnerable populations by empowering people with education, data, and science. These resources give communities a voice in what is happening with their health and the environment.
Were you diagnosed with cancer or an autoimmune disease in Florida and suspect that your illness was due to an environmental factor?
Fight For Zero began crowdsourcing this information seven years ago and got a cancer cluster investigation through the Department of Health in Brevard and Manatee County. This effort also led us to get environmental testing, which showed we had cancer-causing chemicals in our water.
It also brought awareness to public health and encouraged residents to get cancer screenings. The data we collect is mapped and used to make positive changes for Florida's future. Fight For Zero believes that you are more than a number and that every person counts in this fight against cancer and rare diseases.
