DPSST Pink Patch
DPSST Pink Patch
DPSST Goes Pink in October to Bring Awareness to Breast Cancer Awareness Month (Photo) - 10/02/18

The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) has joined the Pink Patch Project again this year.

The Pink Patch Project (#PinkPatchProject) is an innovative public awareness campaign, that involves hundres of public safety agencies around the country, designed to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease. 

The pink DPSST patches are intended to stimulate conversation with staff and the community and to encourage public awareness about the importance of early detection and the on-going fight against this disease.

DPSST's Director Eriks Gabliks said "DPSST staff know first-hand the impact of breast cancer, and other cancers, have in our organization, our families, and our community. Anything we can do to bring awareness to the issue, or support our staff who have, or are, fighting cancer is worth the time.  While October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it is an opportunity to also bring awareness to the cancer issues faced by our career and volunteer firefighters around the state.  Firefighters have a 9 percent higher risk of being diagnosed with cancer than the general U.S. population and a 14 percent higher risk of dying from cancer than the general U.S. population according to the Firefighter Cancer Support Network.  Bring awareness to all cancers and sharing information about detection and prevention is paramount."

Why October?  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease.    It is estimated that approximately 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime

The simple goal of the Pink Patch Project is to increase awareness about the life-saving benefits of early detection and intervention in the fight against breast cancer.
