Breast Cancer Awareness Month began on October 1 and runs through October 31. Sheriff John Cottle and members of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office will help to support breast cancer survivors and the fighters of the disease by wearing pink shirts every Friday in October.
“Invasive ductal carcinoma are three awful words not family anticipates hearing,” said Sheriff John Cottle. “Knowledge is power and this is our way of promoting breast cancer awareness and education.”
Each Friday in October, Sheriff Cottle, members of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Community Services Unit and Command Staff will wear pink shirts. Patrol deputies will continue to wear their normal patrol uniforms but are authorized to wear pink ribbons on their uniform during October.
Sheriff Cottle hopes Lincoln County residents will join him in this worthwhile endeavor to help find a cure.
