Life Scan is a great partner at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, helping me to protect the health of my Officers. When my Officers are healthier, so is the health and safety of Jacksonville.

To have the opportunity to have something so comprehensive as Life
Scan and to identify problems that officers may not know about and have them treated before they become life threatening… it is just incredible. I am so glad that the City of Tampa has partnered with Life Scan to keep all of my officers safe and healthy.

When our administration had brought in Life Scan Wellness Center for the first time in 2016 they caught a rare variant of thyroid cancer prior to its spread. This cancer has a very poor 5-year mortality prognosis because as in my case it’s symptom-free until it spreads and there is no conventional Chemo/Radiation for it. By God’s grace and BSO Fire Rescue’s proactiveness to bring in Life Scan Wellness Center, I am happy to say that I am still working 5+ years cancer-free.
I believe it is incumbent upon us as fire chiefs to lead by example when it comes to our health. Too many times, we see people in positions of leadership in public safety who are out of shape, not paying attention to their own health. That is ridiculous, especially when we know that in our industry, the leading cause of death is cardiovascular disease. So I’m doing the treadmill test, and the technician tells me I’m in atrial fibrillation. I was so surprised. I had no palpitations, no shortness of breath,”

In 2018 my wife and I went to the metro conference in San Antonio and we got a complimentary Life Scan which found a spot on one of my kidneys. They gave me all of the information I needed to take back to my primary doctor. Cancer is always somebody else, when they tell you that you have cancer it’s really a shock to you. There’s no doubt that Life Scan saved my life. That’s the reason I’m here today so I’m putting this to good practice and spreading the word. Watch Video
For a couple of decades, I’ve been involved in getting Life Scans and for me it was a blessing because, like many of my colleagues, in 2014 my Life Scan discovered I had developed a rare type of leukemia. Fortunately, it was caught early. Pretty emotional to think about what if I hadn’t been going to regular Life Scans and regular fire department physicals. If I didn’t have good comprehensive medical care and Life Scan, very possible I wouldn’t be here anymore. Watch Video
