The Titusville Fire Department (TFD) recently presented the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) with a donation of $2,000 in support of cancer care programs at Parrish Healthcare.
This is the eighth year that TFD has participated in their annual Pink Out Campaign, and since its inception they have raised more than $17,000 for cancer care initiatives.
In October, members of TFD showed their commitment to raising breast cancer awareness by wearing pink-themed T-shirts instead of their uniforms. They also sold limited edition TFD Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirts and stainless steel tumblers provided by Printboy which contributed to the success of this year’s fundraising efforts.
The funds will be used to provide free life-saving mammograms to those who are unable to afford them due to unemployment or lack of insurance coverage.
Shannon Luker, PHC Breast Health Navigator and Oncology Program Coordinator said “It is gratifying to be part of a community that comes together to help provide vital resources for cancer screenings that enable us identify cancers in earlier stages resulting in better patient outcomes.”
Rachel Terry, JPMF Immediate Past Board Chair & Annual Gifts Co-Chair added “We are grateful for our community partner Titusville Fire Department for their ongoing commitment and helping advance PMC’s vision Healing Families—Healing Communities®”.
Titusville Fire Department’s generous contribution will ensure access to critical services and care for those living in North Brevard County who may not otherwise have access without it.
