MCTXSheriff Partners with Canopy in the Fight against Breast Cancer
October 1, 2020 begins Breast Cancer Awareness Month, where we support the survivors and fighters of this life-threatening disease. Sheriff Rand Henderson and members of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office will proudly show our love and support by wearing pink badges and newly designed T-Shirts during the whole month of October. Every employee you see wearing a pink badge or t-shirt individually purchased them and many are dedicated to a family member, loved one, or friend who has battled or currently battling breast cancer.
By doing this, not only do we show our support, but we also are donating to help someone in their fight against breast cancer. To support the fight locally, members of the Sheriff's Office, as well as the public, are encouraged to donate to a cancer charity. A portion of the badges' proceeds will be donated to The National Breast Cancer Foundation, whose mission is to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services. The T-shirts' proceeds will go to Canopy- The Cancer Survivorship Center for support services, education, and integrative medial services to all those impacted by cancer in Montgomery County and beyond, regardless where the patients are getting treatments.
To some of our employees, breast cancer is personal, whether it has attacked their mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, close friend, or them personally. 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! At the end of October, some of our deputies will present their pink badge to the family/family member or friend to pay tribute to their fight.
Sheriff Rand Henderson states, "In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, we are proud to partner with Canopy and The National Breast Cancer Foundation in raising awareness about breast cancer. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is doing our part to honor those who have passed and those who continue their battle against breast cancer. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Employees are proud to be involved in this campaign to raise awareness and education in the fight against breast cancer."
