EDITOR'S DESK: Forget breast cancer awareness; aim for expertise

Published: Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 08:28 PM.

The event’s featured guest is a pink Jacksonville firetruck named Chase, which bears the names of countless breast cancer survivors who share their stories with the simple strokes of a permanent marker. Crestview breast cancer survivors are scheduled to speak, as will Dr. Loretta Brestan, a general surgeon who will explain the medical process to attendees.

It’s going to get personal, it’s going to be educational and it may ultimately save your life. However, that doesn’t mean there’s no fun. Attendees can enter for a chance to win door prizes. Further, 105.5 FM “The Wolf” will broadcast from the medical center.

Just go. Take a step out of the “awareness” shadow and into the light of true knowledge.

It just may save your life.
