The Pink Patch | Oxnard Police Department announce their candidate for the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign

According to the American Cancer Society Cancer Facts & Figures 2018, more than 266,000 women are expected to be newly diagnosed with breast cancer in the US, and an estimated 40,920 women are expected to die from the disease. No one should have to face a breast cancer diagnosis alone. That’s why we joined the American Cancer Society in support of their life saving work by participating in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign.

The Real Men Wear Pink Campaign gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Community leaders around the nation use the power of pink to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society breast cancer initiatives, including innovative research, patient services, and education around screenings and risk reduction. It’s one important way we’re attacking cancer from every angle.

We are proud to announce our candidate for the Real Men Wear Pink campaign, Sergeant Jeff McGreevy. Sergeant McGreevy is a United States Marine Corps Veteran and has been a police officer in Ventura County for over 26 years. He is also the husband of a breast cancer survivor. Their journey began in 2012 when his wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. His family was devastated and terrified by this diagnosis but found great strength from family and friends, especially our brothers and sisters in blue here at Oxnard Police Department.

Sergeant McGreevy and family are not alone in their fight against breast cancer. Many members of our OPD family and community have been personally impacted by this disease. As a Department, we am committed to raising awareness and funds to help the American Cancer Society saves lives from breast cancer.

For the first time in Oxnard’s history, the Oxnard Police Department is participating in the Pink Patch Project. The innovative project is a public awareness campaign designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. The pink patches are intended to stimulate conversations within our community and raise public awareness about the importance of early detection and treatment in the fight against breast cancer.

The community is invited to purchase our commemorative pink patch for $10 at the Oxnard Police Department, located at 251 S. C Street, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cash will be accepted. ALL ​the proceeds raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem.

We extend our sincere appreciation to our Pink Patch sponsor, Stacy Miller Public Affairs Inc., for supporting this worthy cause and partnering with us to raise funds for education, treatment, and research. When we come together, we truly put the power of pink into action.
