Local agencies observe National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

CORBIN — Corbin firefighters are again conducting a “Pink Helmet Campaign.”

In observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, firefighters will again wear pink helmets as a fundraising campaign for a local cancer organization. Proceeds raised benefit the Tri-County Cancer Coalition, which helps local cancer patients with transportation, lodging and other needs they may have while they are being treated.

The department is also selling T-shirts to raise money for the Tri-County Cancer Coalition. The shirts cost $10 for all adult sizes and can be bought at the Corbin Fire Department’s station on South Main Street during regular business hours, or from any Corbin firefighter.

This year’s design features the Maltese Cross, used by Saint Florian — a Roman firefighter who is the Patron Saint of Firefighters — attached to a pink ribbon on a black background.

Anyone interested in helping the Corbin Fire Department with the campaign should call 523-6529.

Also, the Knox County Health Department is encouraging local residents to have a mammogram.

In Knox County, a mobile “digital” mammography coach will be at La Esperanza Restaurant beginning at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 12. Call the Knox County Health Department at 546-3486
