(Jackson, Tennessee) Medical Center EMS has partnered with West Tennessee Women’s Center, Signs First and Mitchell’s Automotive to place pink ribbons on each of their ambulances during the month of October. The ribbons will help to call attention to breast cancer awareness, early detection and prevention.
“We respond to emergencies every day; it’s what we do. But as a part of this community where we live, work and raise our families, we are affected by the impact of cancer like everyone else. We all know someone affected by cancer and as healthcare professionals, we would love to see an end to it,” says Mark Walker, Shift Manager / Outreach Coordinator, Medical Center EMS.
In addition to pink ribbons on the ambulances, the EMS education unit, affectionately known as “Hope,” will have pink striping and pink stars of life. There will be numerous community events during the month of October in which Hope will be present. Each day of the month, if not at a scheduled event, Hope will be displayed at various locations around Jackson.
Medical Center EMS would like to thank the Women’s Center for allowing them to be an integral part of this year’s breast cancer awareness education. They also extend a special thank you to Mitchell’s Automotive and Signs First for the art work on all the EMS units.
