The Titusville Fire & Emergency Services Department presented Jess
Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) with a check for $2,500 to benefit cancer
care programs at Parrish Medical Center (PMC). Members of Titusville Fire
& Emergency Services Department traded their uniform shirts for pink
themed T-shirts the entire month of October, as part of a nationwide effort
to raise awareness about breast cancer.
“Thanks to the support from all of those who bought shirts, allowing
us to give money to a local foundation that directly supports women dealing
with breast cancer. Thanks to the outpouring of support, we sold more
than 320 shirts. We look forward to giving even more next year,”
said Gregory Sutton, City of Titusville battalion chief.
Several members from the Titusville Department presented the check to Shannon
Luker, PMC breast health navigator and oncology program coordinator; Marsha
Richardson, PMC clinical nurse consultant for medical/surgical oncology;
Kimberly Severson, former PMC patient and breast cancer survivor; and
Misty Wilson, director of Jess Parrish Medical Foundation.
“We know that being diagnosed with cancer is a difficult time for
patients and their families. A breast health navigator who works directly
with patients to coordinate care, free supplies through our Cancer Care
Boutique and mammograms for underinsured or noninsured patients are just
a few examples of the services available as a resource to cancer patients
through our cancer care program. We are very thankful for this generous
and heartfelt donation,” said Richardson.
