Santa Paula Fire Department goes pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By Debra Tash

As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, I deeply understand the pain and trauma of this devastating disease.  My mother’s cancer was caught early due to a remarkable device.  In its third generation at the time it could finally be used to image small tumors. Higher resolution Mammography was just coming into wide use in 1970.  It has since developed into an even more refined procedure that exposes sensitive tissue to far less radiation than in my mother’s day.   Remembering the fear and the grief over the operation that changed her forever, I remember that, more importantly, it prolonged her life to the point where she lived to see her grandchildren and she even got to dance at one of their weddings. 

I want to thank the team of fine people at the Santa Paula Fire Department.  Not only do they save lives while risking their own, they help remind us that this disease is beatable.  You are all the best!  God bless you and keep you safe.
