When individuals join a team to respond to a call, a rescue situation or a mission, there is a strong bond between the responders driven by common interest and like minds. LEADERSHIP, COMMITMENT and UNITY are all powerful qualities that ensures the success of reaching the end goal- as is the case of all members of our F.A.C.E.S. national alliance. F.A.C.E.S. is a public collective of caregivers offering a wide variety of resources to all first responders in need of help. As HELP comes in many forms, we strive to continually build our catalog of materials, links, contacts and vital information that may provide relief and support to all our friends.

Our alliance has formulated what we consider the Partnership Action Plan comprised of relationships with notable members who are supporters of either CANCER care, FIREFIGHTERS support or resources that fulfill one or both interests. Together, we pursue a mission of solidarity providing care and support for responders in need. Our partners fall into one or more of the following categories:

- CASE NAVIGATION DOCUMENTS: Vital materials and forms for filing workers comp claims
- FINANCIAL SUPPORT: Sources of grants, financial support or donatable materials
- CANCER DIAGNOSTICS DIRECTORY: medical imaging groups, labs, programs, biopsies and screening solutions

- EDUCATION & CANCER NEWS: Reviews, News, reports on diagnostic care/treatment
- PROFESSIONAL SERVICES: Info and access to experts, health centers and diagnostic & therapeutic solutions
- CANCER ORGANIZATIONS:Charitable agencies, foundations, patient advocacy orgs
- FIREFIGHTER SUPPORT ORGS: Cancer/non-cancer related support foundations
- HELPFUL SERVICES, SUPPORT TOOLS & RESOURCES: Wellness services, Inspirational empowerment, procurement, financial vendors

Our Medical Diagnostic Community provides diagnostic options targeting the most common health issues recorded from toxic exposure. Use of advanced sonogram technology out-performs MRI’s, X-Rays and CT-Scans and is a safe, non-invasive and radiation-free option to accurately gather real-time images of the inside of the body. It is used to find anomalies and help diagnose any injuries, tumors, cysts and infection while allowing the diagnostician the ability to zoom and ‘travel’ deep into the body for maximum exploration.

SCAN 1: For all new patients, it is recommended to start with a diagnostic imaging exam of the patient’s LUNGS, BLADDER, THYROID and LIVER to seek out any significant cysts and tumors. These are the more common organs that would show any telltale signs of any further issues in the body.

PROSTATE: The CDC has recorded Prostate Cancer as the second largest number of cancer cases in first responders. We offer a comprehensive prostate scan using advanced doppler technology to monitor and identify any cancerous issues that may pre-exist.

ADVANCED LUNG STUDY: Airborne toxins and carcinogens make their way throughout the body starting with the lungs. A more in-depth look at this area helps us identify any infections past or present from scarring or early stages of growths in the nearby airways. This can also be used as a preventative or early-detection procedure for possible future cases of Lung Cancer.

FULL SKIN DIAGNOSTICS: The CDC rated non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) as the most common tumor in exposure cases. Skin cancer rates are continuing to rise and the most deadly form (melanoma) may be ruled out by 3D Doppler histogram imaging and advanced optical diagnostics.


Historical reports show significant cancer claims from emergency rescue units- especially FIREFIGHTERS. Where prior diagnoses may not identify dormant cancer strains, this program is attuned to search for and recognize markers from a thorough and comprehensive review with the use of advanced Histogram Analysis technology. Dr. Bard's program is also available for pinpointing a more accurate 'second view' of the behavior of pre-existing job related cancer cases (thyroid, kidney, prostate, lung, pancreatic, leukemia & multiple myeloma, etc.) and can recommend solutions that may confirm or invalidate prior reviews. Also, the BCD program is designed to providing a detailed analysis of many tumors, cysts or premalignant lesions that is complementary to most recognized biopsy reports without the invasive surgical procedure!

Another effective "weapon" in the battle against this epidemic is the Bard Cancer Diagnostic Program: From Advanced Cancer Scanning to the Non-Invasive "Digital Biopsy". Dr. Robert Bard, expert Cancer diagnostician and the Northeast’s expert in 4D Doppler Imaging has developed the POST 9/11 CANCER DIAGNOSTICS PROGRAM. His NYC-based facilities (Bard Cancer Diagnostic Imaging) are equipped with only the most advanced state-of-the-art technologies that often out-performs higher-priced MRI’s, CT-Scan’s and X-Rays while promising to deliver more affordable and accurate reports in REAL-TIME from a process that's ready in MINUTES. BCD is prepared to provide any first responder or survivor with advanced cancer screenings to search for impending cancers. Pre-cancerous symptoms that may arise as per the rising reported numbers of cancer cases are evaluated quickly, accurately and painlessly.

CANCER DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) has isolated and scanned countless cases of cancers using the most advanced diagnostic imaging technologies worldwide. We provide early detection and real-time "digital biopsies" of many tumor types using 4D Doppler innovations bringing accuracy and expediency to the comprehensive report- within MINUTES. For our patients, this is a priceless advantage that cuts down the wait time, decreases travel (to multiple diagnostic centers) and reduces the insurmountable level of stress and intolerable problems of today’s increasing medical bureaucracy. Our technology outperforms the advantages of MRI, X-ray and CT scans by 20-to-1. We have an uncompromising system that’s unique to the health care profession whereby our combined experience and technical advancements are called upon by many university hospitals and private practices today.

With the aid of 4D Doppler Technology, Dr. Bard can identify, detect and analyze many tumors from pre-malignant areas to advanced cancerous cases. The regular sonogram shows a malignant disorder (top) while the 4D scan (bottom) displays a mass filled with cancerous arteries and veins meaning this is highly aggressive requiring immediate attention.

Exposure to toxins may produce cancers in many organs. This patients chronic cough prompted a chest sonogram showing a pulmonary tumor that had produced malignant fluid partially collapsing the breathing volume but had not yet metastasized below the diaphragm. The liver, an early target of cancer seeding, was clearly seen to be untouched in the same sonogram study simply by moving the probe from the chest wall to the abdomen sparing our patient from extra testing and mental stress over the possible spread of disease.

Our mesothelioma patient (pictured above) had a minor injury and noticed a new lump under the small bruise. A 5 minute scan showed the discoloration was caused by minor blood vessel damage due to the underlying BENIGN fatty tumor.  Cysts and other non-malignant disorders can be distinguished from metastatic lymph nodes (glands) providing “real-time” relief of anxiety of cancer recurrence.
