Titusville’s Fire and Emergency Services Department presented Jess
Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) with $1,300 in support of cancer care
programs at Parrish Medical Center (PMC).
During the month of October, as part of nationwide and local efforts to
raise breast cancer awareness, Titusville’s Fire and Emergency Services
Department showed their support by going pink for the cause. Department
members sold and wore pink-themed T-shirts in October in place of their
uniform shirts in observance of breast cancer awareness month.
“For the fourth year, Titusville Fire is honored to be able to give
back to the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation and support PMC’s cancer
care programs. We look forward to continuing our partnership for years
to come,” said Gregory Sutton, battalion chief. “Without the
support of our local printer, Printboy, the community, and all those that
purchased our breast cancer T-shirts, this would not be possible. Many
of our members have family who have been affected by this terrible disease.
Our job is more than running emergency calls, and it’s a great feeling
knowing the sale of that shirt, in some small way, helped someone dealing
with breast cancer.”
Sutton, and members from the department presented the check to Shannon
Luker, PMC breast health navigator and oncology program coordinator; Marsha
Richardson, PMC director of oncology services; and Misty Wilson, director, JPMF.
“We are grateful for the generous support and selfless commitment
of our community partner, Titusville Fire and Emergency Services, for
their ongoing commitment to those we serve in North Brevard and in helping
to advance PMC’s vision of Healing Families—Healing Communities®,”
“A cancer diagnosis 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 to cancer patients through our cancer care program,” said
Luker. “TFD’s generous donation will help provide continued
support for our patients and their families throughout their cancer journey.
We are very thankful for this generous and heartfelt donation.”
