This year an estimated 276,000 Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and more than 42,000 will likely die from this terrible disease. But, with early detection and improved treatments, today there is a 90% five-year survival rate for women diagnosed with breast cancer. That's why the Mont Belvieu Fire Department is joining other first responding agencies from across our area and the country during the month of October in dedicating ourselves to increasing awareness, encouraging early screenings, and doing what we can in the fight against this disease that has touched so many lives.
GETTING OUR PINK ON!
As a show of support for those who are currently fighting this disease as well as honoring the fortitude of breast cancer survivors, our paramedics and firefighters will be wearing special "pink out" uniforms all month long. We want everyone to know that when it comes to breast cancer, no one fights alone.
