Show your support for #BreastCancerAwareness Month with USFRA #ThinkPink shirts and help first responders

October 18, 2020

First Responders (esp. firefighters) face many types of health issues since they are exposed to multiple toxins throughout their careers, so #BreastCancerAwareness month is very near and dear to our hearts since our nonprofit’s CEO is a retired Fire Captain.

Although October is the official #ThinkPink month, many first responders hold awareness campaigns year-round with pink shirts, uniforms and apparatus while doing educational events and fundraisers to help spread the word.

U.S. First Responders Association now has 3 t-shirts available to support breast cancer awareness and proceeds benefit first responders.

Learn how to order USFRA shirts for yourself and/or your family, cancer survivor warriors, staff and others at www.usfra.org/listings

“Know Your Lemons” campaign (breast cancer warning signs)

January 21, 2017

As I posted on USFRA.org recently, Corrine Beaumont, a young designer and founder of Worldwide Breast Cancer, has created a great breast cancer warning signs graphic as part of WBC’s “Know Your Lemons” campaign.

Beaumont lost both her grandmothers to breast cancer at the ages of 40 and 62 and found limited pictorial data about breast cancer warning signs, so she felt compelled to come up with a solution.

Her designs provide a simple, visual way of showing what breast cancer symptoms can look and feel like using lemons. She has also developed great graphic below explaining what to feel for during a breast exam.
