Titusville Fire Department Raises Awareness and Funds in Support of   Parrish Healthcare’s Cancer Care Program

TITUSVILLE, FLA. (Jan. 3, 2023) —Titusville Fire Department (TFD) presented Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) with $2,000 in support of cancer care programs at Parrish Healthcare (PHC). Since the inception of the annual Pink Out Campaign, TFD has raised more than $17,000 to support Parrish’s Cancer Care program.

Titusville Fire Department showed their support by going pink for the cause with their 2022 Pink Out campaign. During the month of October, as part of nationwide and local efforts to raise breast cancer awareness, department members continued their tradition of selling and wearing pink-themed T-shirts in place of their uniform shirts to observe breast cancer awareness month.

For the eighth year, Titusville Fire has generously given back to JPMF and supported PHC’s cancer care program. In addition to releasing a new design for the limited-edition TFD Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirt and stainless-steel tumblers provided by Printboy, vintage design T-shirts were included in this year’s campaign fundraising selections.

“Social media, online ordering, the addition of new items and numerous longtime campaign supporters contributed to the success of this year’s fundraising,” stated Gregory Sutton, battalion chief of administration, PIO. “Our sincerest thanks to those from our community and beyond that ordered shirts and tumblers to support our campaign in the fight against cancer. We look forward to next year’s campaign, our continued partnership with JPMF and giving back to those we serve.”

Screenings remain a top priority for PHC. “The Cancer Care program at Parrish, the area’s only program that is nationally accredited by the Commission on Cancer, continues to provide free life-saving mammograms to those most in need; those that are out of work, under-insured or without insurance, and those struggling with high deductibles,” said Shannon Luker, PHC breast health navigator and oncology program coordinator. “We are grateful to TFD and all those in the community that supported this year’s campaign. It is gratifying to be part of a community that comes together to help provide the vital resources for cancer screenings that enable us to identify cancer in earlier stages, resulting in better patient outcomes.”

“The generous support provided by Titusville Fire will provide the availability of additional resources and opportunities to those we serve in North Brevard that may not otherwise have access to these critical services and care,” said Rachel Terry, JPMF immediate past board chair and annual gifts co-chair. “We are grateful to our community partner, Titusville Fire Department, for their ongoing commitment to PHC’s cancer care program and helping to advance PMC’s vision of Healing Families—Healing Communities®.
