New cancer benefits began this month for volunteer firefighters in New York State.
Since January 1, they've been able to receive help paying for medical costs associated with cancer.
Under the plan, most cancers are covered, and 110,000 firefighters qualify for the program. Lung cancer, mesothelioma and non-melanoma skin cancers are not covered under the program.
