During the month of October, Occoquan-Woodbridge-Lorton Volunteer Fire Department members will wear pink T-shirts to raise breast cancer awareness, according to an OWL VFD statement.
"Cancer has touched almost everyone’s life, including members of our own department. We want to remind them that they are not alone, that we care,” Department Chief Jim McAllister said. “This is one more way we can give back and raise awareness.”
OWL VFD also supports children's cancer research with their annual St. Baldrick's event in March.
“My Grandmother fought and beat Breast Cancer not once, but twice," technician Matt Haight said. "Those fighting for their lives are courageous and brave. We want them to know they aren’t alone.”
