During the month of October, as part of nationwide and local efforts to raise breast cancer awareness, Titusville’s Fire 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 fifth year, Titusville Fire has generously given back to JPMF and supported PMC’s cancer care program. “Giving back to the community is gratifying for the department,” said Gregory Sutton, battalion chief. “To know that we are personally making a difference in the lives of those in our community that need the vital services provided by PMC’s cancer care program means so much. We look forward to developing bigger and better ways to increase awareness and our fundraising efforts as we help advance the great work Parrish is doing to provide healing care for those dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis. Adam and Tiffany at Printboy, our local printer, and everyone that purchased T-shirts helped make this donation possible. We are grateful for the enormous support we have received from the community.”

Sutton and members from the Department presented the check to Marsha Richardson, PMC director of oncology services; Tanya Abreu, executive director, JPMF; and Jessie Kirk JPMF board chair.

“Jess Parrish Medical Foundation is proud of our unique community partnership with Titusville Fire Department to fight breast cancer in North Brevard. They have been unwavering in their commitment to help advance PMC’s vision of Healing Families—Healing Communities®,” said Abreu.

As a breast health navigator, I have witnessed first-hand the impact Parrish’s cancer care program has on the patients and families we serve,” stated Shannon Luker, PMC breast health navigator and oncology program coordinator. “We are grateful to Titusville Fire Department for their generous gift and continued support in the fight against breast cancer. They are a shining example of how our community is stronger when working together. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our patients and their families throughout their cancer journey.”
