From the Chief
The Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection District personnel have voluntarily opted to wear pink to bring about breast cancer awareness for the month of October, and cancer in general. I am grateful that the firefighters support this idea.
There are many of us who have family and/or friends affected by breast cancer. Although I am not a breast cancer survivor, I am a son and a friend of people who have had breast cancer. I am fortunate that I can still talk and be with some of them and of those that I lost— joyous memories. It is important for me to demonstrate support for my mother, my dear friends, and anyone who has or has had cancer, so they know that I care. I believe that the Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection District personnel should have the same opportunity to show their support by wearing pink to bring about awareness to breast cancer, and cancer in general.
The residents of Aptos and La Selva, and those who visit our amazing communities, should know that the firefighters who wear pink support bringing about breast cancer awareness and other cancers.
