A cancer screening pilot program in partnership with Dartmouth Health, Manchester Fire Department, and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield proved lifesaving as screening results were shared, along with a personal story from the city fire marshal, at a news event held at Manchester Central Fire Department on Monday. “Due to this early screening program, one department member is cancer-free today,” said Chief Ryan J. Cashin of the Manchester Fire Department (MFD). “Every day the Manchester Fire Department responds to the citizens of this great city with the single purpose of saving lives. It is an honor to announce that we saved the life of one of our own members.” Fire Marshal Peter J. Lennon, CFI, lung screening showed incidental findings which triggered the need for additional blood work.
