FREDERICKTOWN — Station 440, the home of Fredericktown Emergency Medical Services, is also home to a concerted effort to raise awareness of, and funds for, breast cancer care and breast wellness.
EMS Chief Rick Lanuzza, whose mother is a breast cancer survivor, said the members of the Fredericktown EMS Association launched the T-shirt drive as a way to reach out and give more back to the community they serve.
Lanuzza said the squad has sold about 400 shirts so far, and $4 from the sale of each shirt will be donated to the Center for Cancer Care at Knox Community Hospital for breast cancer care and breast health. The funds will be used to purchase items such as mammography pads to make breast cancer screening a little less uncomfortable.
To purchase a shirt, visit Station 440, 139 Columbus Road, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. or call 694-0351 for more information.
