    Lynchburg Fire Dept. Conducting Cancer Awareness Campaign


    The Lynchburg Fire Department is conducting its annual Cancer Awareness Campaign by selling specially designed t-shirts and sweatshirts.  This year’s shirt design pays tribute to the 10th anniversary of the campaign. Proceeds will benefit the Centra Foundation’s Mammograms Annually A Must (MAAM) Fund/Alan B. Pearson Regional Cancer Patient Support Fund, the Firefighter Cancer Support Network and the Lynchburg Fire Department Museum.


     


    MAAM is a volunteer group that helps fund and organize free mammography screening and diagnostic treatment in the community.  The Patient Support Program was designed to provide financial assistance and ensure patients have access to support services and therapies.  


     


    The mission of the Firefighter Cancer Support Network is to help fire/EMS members and their families cope with cancer and to provide occupational-cancer awareness and prevention training nationwide.


     


    The Lynchburg Fire Department Museum is a non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of the Lynchburg Fire Department. All contributions stay within Lynchburg and the surrounding community.  


     


    Pre-orders for the t-shirts and sweatshirts are being taken now through Friday, September 6. After September 6, the shirts will be sold on a first-come basis while supplies last.
