October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a pretty well known fact. A lesser known fact is that October is Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirt Month at Samaritan Care! During the month of October, our crews, van drivers, and office staff ditch the normal navy blue uniform shirts and don black t-shirts with bright pink stars of life and the phrase “EMS For a Cure”. It’s a nice change from our everyday uniform, and lets the community know we support the cause.
October is also a great time to take care of some of those cancer screenings you may have been putting off. Whether it's a mammogram, a colonoscopy, or just a routine physical, getting checked out could save your life. Prevention is, after all, the best medicine. If not for yourself, do it for your loved ones.
