PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — An EMS agency is honoring Breast Cancer Awareness month by rolling out a pink ambulance.
WFLA reported that Sunstar Paramedics dressed up one of its ambulances in pink for the month of October.
The EMS agency said they have personally been impacted by breast cancer after losing an employee to the disease years ago.
“The Sunstar’s pink ambulance started as a way to memorialize her, but as more employees and family members have battled the disease, the pink ambulance has grown to represent all of our families and help raise awareness for early detection,” Stanley said.
Sunstar now makes it a goal to inspire women to get checked regularly for breast cancer and get early intervention.
