'Cindy' the Pink Firetruck

                                   CindyThe Pink Firetruck

'Cindy' brings her mission to spread love, hope, and awareness to women and urge them to get
 regular checkups for all types of cancers in Lower Alabama. 'Cindy' is not just any lady..she is a very special pink lady.'Cindy' is the pink fire truck from Orange Beach Alabama, where she makes her home with Chief Eddie. She spends most of her time traveling around the coast raising awareness and spreading cheer to survivors and their families. Chief Eddie is always happy to let you step inside and look around,have a picture taken, or sign the Engine .

It was my pleasure to check her out and talk to Chief Eddie about all the great work that he and Cindy do along the Gulfcoast. The Chief is available to talk to groups and visit schools ,churches and organizations who would like to bring more awareness to not just Breast Cancer but all types of cancers. So keep him in mind if any of you out there would like to book him to bring Cindy and to talk about issues in your community.

 A lot of people may not know ,but not only is OCTOBER PINKTOBER but it is

also NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION MONTH. Each year, the campaign focuses on a different

aspect of safety, from preventing forest fires to planning an escape route during a blaze. While the

campaign lasts the entire month most police and fire departments designate the second week of

October as Fire Prevention Week, during which demonstrations and expos are held in different U.S.


Sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA),Fire Prevention Month has roots

  that date back to THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE of 1871 that killed more than 250 people and left

more than 100,000 homeless. The fire,which was reportedly started in a barn, also burned more than

2,000 acres and destroyed about 17,400 structures. The three-day fire, which started October 8,did

most of its damage on October 9,1871,which is why Fire Prevention Week is always held around that

 date. The first National Fire Prevention Day was declared by President Woodrow Wilson in

1922,and the week long observance is the longest running public safety and health campaign on record.

Hi Friends!

    As you all know its that time THINK PINK!!  We are all interested in the new stats and information related to Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness. This disease affects all of us in some form or fashion. We all know a friend or loved one who may be a survivor or is currently suffering with Breast Cancer. I personally know too many to count.

Management of people with breast cancer later in life is often challenging due to lack of good quality evidence regarding the roles of adjuvant chemotherapy. Decisions regarding chemotherapy should be made based on  the type of tumor and the age of the tumor rather than the person's chronological age.(http/

According to recent data and the opinions of Cancer Specialists the best treatment for Breast Cancer is still early detection and maintaining an overall healthy well-balanced lifestyle. So in this month of PINKTOBER remember to get those yearly check-ups and mammograms!
