ABOUT US:
What Is CODE 3 FOR A CURE?


C3FAC Warrior Helmet Shield photoThe Code 3 for a Cure Foundation is a national nonprofit 501(c)3 public charity approved as such by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on September 11, 2008. It is run by a President/Founder, Cofounder, Public Information Officer, and Board of Directors who meet at least quarterly to establish policy and set the direction of the Foundation.

The Foundation has a three-fold purpose: (1) provide financial assistance to firefighters across the United States who are battling cancer and facing a financial hardship; (2) support firefighters diagnosed with cancer, and help minimize the effects of cancer among firefighters, by giving encouragement and sharing our experiences. This is achieved, in part, through the Annual Mission of Honor and Hope; and (3) provide financial support to select other U.S. nonprofit cancer organizations.

Code 3 for a Cure was formed out of one firefighter's struggles. President/Founder Lorenzo Abundiz (Firefighter/Engineer, Santa Ana, California, USA), a 27-year veteran of the fire service, was first diagnosed with cancer in 1998, forced into an early medical disability retirement in 2001, and since then has been diagnosed with two other cancers.

So what's the meaning behind the term "Code 3?" The term is used to refer to an emergency vehicle going to the highest level of response in an emergency situation, when lights and sirens are utilized. Its meaning in the context of this organization is, let's move to the highest level of response to help cure the effects of cancer by helping one group who, statisically, is one of the most heavily afflicted by the disease.
