Sheriff Partners with Canopy for Breast Cancer Awareness
October 1, 2020, began Breast Cancer Awareness Month, where members of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office and the community were able to show support to the survivors and fighters of this life-threatening disease. Sheriff Rand Henderson and members of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office proudly showed their love and support by wearing pink badges and newly designed t-shirts throughout the month of October. Every employee seen wearing a pink badge or t-shirt individually purchased them, and many are dedicated to a family member, a loved one, or friend who has battled or is currently battling breast cancer.
This year, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office selected Canopy Cancer Survivorship Center at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center as the recipient of the donations raised. Fully Promoted Branding Products and Marketing Services was also a partner in designing and providing the t-shirts to the Sheriff’s Office employees.
On October 29, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office presented a $2,256.00 check from Fully Promoted to Canopy to be used for support services, education, and integrative medial services for all those impacted by cancer in Montgomery County and beyond, regardless where the patients are getting treatments.
Sheriff Rand Henderson stated, “Compassion is one of our core values that we strive to uphold each day, and we wanted our community to know that we support The Pink! To some of our employees, the fight against breast cancer is personal. Whether it has attacked their mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, close friend, or them personally. A sincere thank you to all who participated in bringing awareness to this great cause.”
