Firefighter With Cancer Denied Disability

A Cranston firefighter request for a disability pension because of colon cancer is being rejected by the state Retirement Board.  The panel voted seven to six to reject Kevin Lang's appeal, likely sending the case into workers compensation court.  Lang is a smoker, and the city argues that the cancer is not a job related medical condition.  He was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2012 after serving as a Cranston firefighter for almost two decades.
