Breast Cancer Awareness (April, 2010).
High Country Fire Rescue Volunteers will be hearing pink medical gloves to support National Breast Cancer Awareness. The Volunteers are honoring Edna Thornburgh who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2009. Fire Chief Robert Small reports the Department has purchased pink medical gloves for the Fire Fighters to wear during medical aid calls. A portion of the glove purchase goes to the National Breast Cancer Awareness program for women.
EMS Captain Robert Trotter stated, “We want to honor the memory of Edna Thornburgh and her family who are supporters of High Country Fire Rescue. Edna was a very kind and caring wife and mother, and High Country Fire Rescue Volunteers will wear our pink gloves as a tribute to her. We also want to remember all breast cancer patients, survivors and family members in memory of their loved ones. High Country Fire Rescue encourages community members to participate in their own personal manner in support of the National Breast Cancer Awareness Program.”
