Alabama firefighters sell T-shirts to raise money for breast cancer

Firefighters from the Albertville, Alabama, department are putting in an effort to fight against breast cancer by selling T-shirts, according to The Sand Mountain Reporter.

The T-shirts they designed come in both black and pink, and have a shield with a pink ribbon draped over it. The shield has four words written on it - courage, hope, strength and faith, according to the media outlet.

All of the proceeds for these shirts, which can be ordered from the fire station at $10 each, will go to the local Marshall Medical Centers Mammography Assistance Program, and this is not the first year they have done so.

"We did this last year and it was a big hit," fire marshal Westley Bynum told the news source. "Everyone has been touched in some way by cancer. This is one way we can bring awareness to the cause."

According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime. The disease is the second leading cancer-related cause of death among women, following only lung cancer.
