Hello. My name is Robert Webb- retired Captain from the Fort Worth Fire Department. Having had cancer myself and underwent the many challenges of the worker's comp process, I struggled through searching for what I needed to file for financial support while going through treatments at the same time. Over time, I learned about proper evidence and materials I needed to submit through deep research to satisfy the State's system.




THE CANCER PACKETS catalogued on this page are free of charge and are compiled with the intentions of assisting patients with their physicians and their attorneys or ombudsman in their worker's comp claim case. It also shows the products of combustion that caused each cancer along with associated studies that validate the relationship between the cancer and products of combustion. Each packet is specific to the cancer indicated. All contents in each packet are selected as some of (if not the most) needed information one would need to to proceed.

DISCLAIMER: The following folders are ZIP files of PDF's and MS Word Documents based on (ret) Captain R. Webb's extensive research and personal experience on what he has found to be the most vital and appropriate documents for case building for recently diagnosed cancer patients. Anyone is welcome to download these folders at your own discretion. Capt. Webb, The FACES Foundation and the producers of this page takes no responsibility or accountability for the accuracy of the contents of the packets enclosed. Please make sure you read all contents of the packet describing your specific cancer prior to submitting them to the proper agency.

Below is the catalog of designated cancer packets. If your cancer is not listed or represented, please contact me at: rwebb774@icloud.com and I shall do my best to build it for you.

OVERVIEW OF FIREFIGHTER OCCUPATIONAL CANCER: This packet is designed to aide a treating physician in making an educated diagnostis of a Firefighter Occupational Cancer. They are all assembled to include studies and documents supporting a claim through research and science that each specific cancer is tied to the occupation of the firefighter. They are assembled to cover much of the same similar categories of interest including multiple studies and conclusions along with NIOSH and International Agence on the Research of Cancer (IARC) and other valuable materials from official sources that support the validity of a case. Additionally, instructions are enclosed on the proper filing order when submitting them.

EASY INSTRUCTIONS: (1) Select the packet that applies to you. (2) Click on the ZIP icon of your selection. (3) You will automatically be prompted to download that specific cancer packet onto your computer. (4) Once the full ZIP file is downloaded, click it to open and you should see all the designated documents (PDF's, MS Word etc.) listed. Save them in a clean folder for yourself for easy access and printing. SAFETY ALERT: As with all downloadable documents from any unknown site, please SCAN all folders, files and documents for malware, viruses or malicious stowaways before opening.

ANGIOSARCOMA is a cancer of the endothelial cells that line the walls of blood vessels or lymphatic vessels. It primarily affects older adults. Most tumors of visceral blood and lymphatic vessel walls are cancerous (malignant). Because these cancers are carried by the blood flow or lymphatic flow, they can more easily metastasize to distant sites, particularly the liver and lungs. It may occur at any site but most commonly involves skin, soft tissue, breast, and liver.
BLADDER CANCER is any of several types of cancer arising from the tissues of the urinary bladder. Symptoms include blood in the urine, pain with urination, and low back pain. It is caused when epithelial cells that line the bladder become malignant.
BRAIN CANCER occurs when abnormal cells form within the brain. There are two main types of tumors: cancerous (malignant) tumors and benign (non-cancerous) tumors. These can be further classified as primary tumors, which start within the brain, and secondary tumors, which most commonly have spread from tumors located outside the brain, known as brain metastasis tumors.
BREAST CANCER is cancer that develops from breast tissue. Signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, a newly inverted nipple, or a red or scaly patch of skin. In those with distant spread of the disease, there may be bone pain, swollen lymph nodes, shortness of breath, or yellow skin.
CERVICAL CANCER is a cancer arising from the cervix. It is due to the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Early on, typically no symptoms are seen. Later symptoms may include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain or pain during sexual intercourse. While bleeding after sex may not be serious, it may also indicate the presence of cervical cancer.
COLON CANCER (CRC), also known as bowel cancer, colon cancer, or rectal cancer, is the development of cancer from the colon or rectum (parts of the large intestine). Signs and symptoms may include blood in the stool, a change in bowel movements, weight loss, and fatigue. Most colorectal cancers are due to old age and lifestyle factors, with only a small number of cases due to underlying genetic disorders. Risk factors include diet, obesity, smoking, and lack of physical activity. Dietary factors that increase the risk include red meat, processed meat, and alcohol.
ESOPHAGEAL CANCER arises from the esophagus—the food pipe that runs between the throat and the stomach. Symptoms often include difficulty in swallowing and weight loss. Other symptoms may include pain when swallowing, a hoarse voice, enlarged lymph nodes ("glands") around the collarbone, a dry cough, and possibly coughing up or vomiting blood.

HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA is a type of lymphoma, in which cancer originates from a specific type of white blood cells called lymphocytes, where multinucleated Reed–Sternberg cells (RS cells) are present in the patient's lymph nodes. Symptoms may include fever, night sweats, and weight loss. Often there will be non-painful enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, under the arm, or in the groin. Those affected may feel tired or be itchy.

KIDNEY (RENAL) CANCER also known as renal cancer, is a group of cancers that starts in the kidney. Symptoms may include blood in the urine, lump in the abdomen, or back pain. Fever, weight loss, and tiredness may also occur. Complications can include spread to the lungs or brain.
LEUKEMIA is a group of blood cancers that usually begin in the bone marrow and result in high numbers of abnormal blood cells. These blood cells are not fully developed and are called blasts or leukemia cells. Symptoms may include bleeding and bruising, fatigue, fever, and an increased risk of infections. These symptoms occur due to a lack of normal blood cells.Diagnosis is typically made by blood tests or bone marrow biopsy.
LIVER CANCER (also known as hepatic cancer, primary hepatic cancer, or primary hepatic malignancy) is cancer that starts in the liver. Liver cancer can be primary (starts in liver) or secondary (meaning cancer which has spread from elsewhere to the liver, known as liver metastasis). Liver metastasis is more common than that which starts in the liver. Liver cancer is increasing globally.
LUNG CANCER is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. This growth can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body. Most cancers that start in the lung, known as primary lung cancers, are carcinomas. The two main types are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). The most common symptoms are coughing (including coughing up blood), weight loss, shortness of breath, and chest pains.
MELANOMA is a type of skin cancer that develops from the pigment-producing cells known as melanocytes. Melanomas typically occur in the skin but may rarely occur in the mouth, intestines or eye (uveal melanoma). In women, they most commonly occur on the legs, while in men they most commonly occur on the back. About 25% of melanomas develop from moles. Changes in a mole that can indicate melanoma include an increase in size, irregular edges, change in color, itchiness or skin breakdown.
MULTIPLE MYELOMA (MM), also known as plasma cell myeloma and simply myeloma, is a cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell that normally produces antibodies. Often, no symptoms are noticed initially. As it progresses, bone pain, anemia, kidney dysfunction, and infections may occur. Complications may include amyloidosis.
MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROME DISEASE (MDS) PRE-LEUKEMIA is one of a group of cancers in which immature blood cells in the bone marrow do not mature, so do not become healthy blood cells. Early on, no symptoms typically are seen. Later, symptoms may include feeling tired, shortness of breath, bleeding disorders, anemia, or frequent infections. Some types may develop into acute myeloid leukemia.
NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA is a group of blood cancers that includes all types of lymphomas except Hodgkin lymphomas. Symptoms include enlarged lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, weight loss and tiredness. Other symptoms may include bone pain, chest pain or itchiness. Some forms are slow-growing, while others are fast-growing.
PANCREATIC CANCER arises when cells in the pancreas, a glandular organ behind the stomach, begin to multiply out of control and form a mass. These cancerous cells have the ability to invade other parts of the body. A number of types of pancreatic cancer are known.
PROSTATE CANCER is cancer of the prostate. The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system that surrounds the urethra just below the bladder. Most prostate cancers are slow growing. Cancerous cells may spread to other areas of the body, particularly the bones and lymph nodes. It may initially cause no symptoms. In later stages, symptoms include pain or difficulty urinating, blood in the urine, or pain in the pelvis or back. Benign prostatic hyperplasia may produce similar symptoms. Other late symptoms include fatigue, due to low levels of red blood cells.
SINUS CAVITY CANCER is a cancer that is caused by the appearance and invasion of malignant cells into the paranasal sinus which constructs the hollow and Oxygen-filled areas in bones of nose and tissue called nasal cavity which constructs the tissue above the bones of the mouth top and the front throat. Meanwhile, the major age group of the cancer is between 50–70 years old.
SKIN CANCER are cancers that arise from the skin. They are due to the development of abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are three main types of skin cancers: basal-cell skin cancer (BCC), squamous-cell skin cancer (SCC) and melanoma. The first two, along with a number of less common skin cancers, are known as nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC).
SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA also known as epidermoid carcinomas, comprise a number of different types of cancer that result from squamous cells. These cells form on the surface of the skin, on the lining of hollow organs in the body, and on the lining of the respiratory and digestive tracts.
TESTICULAR CANCER develops in the testicles whose symptoms may include a lump in the testicle, or swelling or pain in the scrotum. Treatment may result in infertility. Risk factors include an undescended testis, family history of the disease, and previous history of testicular cancer. The most common type is germ cell tumors which are divided into seminomas and nonseminomas. Other types include sex-cord stromal tumors and lymphomas.
THYROID CANCER develops from the tissues of the thyroid gland. It is a disease in which cells grow abnormally and have the potential to spread to other parts of the body. Symptoms can include swelling or a lump in the neck. Cancer can also occur in the thyroid after spread from other locations, in which case it is not classified as thyroid cancer.
Above is the catalog of designated cancer packets. If your cancer is not listed or represented, please contact me at: rwebb774@icloud.com and I shall do my best to build it for you. I became proficient in this research and today, I share 24 cancer packets (one for each cancer mentioned) for all my fellow firefighters who are newly diagnosed. Based on my actual research experience for those who requested them, each supportive document in these cancer packets are publicly available in this page to help you build the evidence you need for your filing process.
