Firefighters out of the Oneida Fire Department have banned together to wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness. They began selling uniquely designed pink t-shirts in October and have raised close to $1,000.00 so far. Dennis Relyea, a firefighter with the Oneida FD for 6 years states, “We wanted to get involved in raising awareness and we also wanted to make sure that whatever money we raised, stayed local.”
The CNY Breast Cancer Community Resource Guide includes local organizations, events, products, books and blogs, in an organized magazine style publication for the newly diagnosed and for survivors and supporters who want to get involved in the breast cancer community. The guide was created by Shelly Straub, breast cancer survivor and President of Hope Chest for Charity, Inc.
