Our mission is to represent the diversity, strength, and femininity of the mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives in our department while benefiting breast cancer research and assistance programs locally. Our service to the community is not limited to fighting fires or Emergency Medical Services. We are honored to support those in their fight against the second leading cause of cancer death among women. All of the participants in this calendar have a family member or close friend who have had breast cancer or have been diagnosed with the disease themselves.
Proceeds collected from the sales of the Houston Women Firefighters calendar will be presented to the Houston Affiliation of Susan G. Komen for the cure. This affiliate group supports the men and women of Houston by providing breast health education and resources to the seven county areas it services and whom lack the resources for adequate screening and treatment.
According to Hair Balls, the women will be holding a signing event for the calendar this Friday at The Drinkery on Washington Avenue. You can also order it online. I wish them all much success with this venture.
