Dallas Fire Rescue raises money for breast cancer treatment
Dallas Fire Rescue is wearing and selling their pink and blue breast cancer t-shirts and hats for the month of October to show families impacted by this disease that they are not alone. Odds are you know someone who has battled breast cancer and Dallas Fire Rescue wants citizens to join them in the “Care Enough to Wear Pink” campaign by raising money for treatments in Dallas.
The money raised through t-shirt and hat sales will be donated to the Bridge Breast Network of Dallas, meaning all the money raised will stay in the City of Dallas. The Bridge Breast Network of Dallas assists women who have a lack of resources pay for surgeries, chemotherapy treatment, radiation treatment and helps purchasing medication.
“Getting the word out about breast cancer is important to me as a breast cancer survivor. I’ve been through the treatments and surgeries and I understand the devastation such a diagnosis can bring,” Dallas Fire Rescue’s Shanetra Brown-Armstrong says. “I don’t want women to get complacent about breast cancer. Raising awareness means more women catch the warning signs earlier and that saves lives.”
You can place your t-shirt/hat order via email to Shanetra Brown-Armstrong at [email protected].
