Metro Atlanta Ambulance Service Champions Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Metro Atlanta Ambulance Service has gone all in in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month starting in October by rolling out their first Pink Ribbon Ambulance to bring awareness throughout the community on the subject of breast cancer and the importance of getting regular screening tests. 

The American Cancer Society promotes that regular screenings is the most reliable way to find breast cancer early and in finding cancer early is when it is easier to treat. 

MetroAtlanta Ambulance President Pete Quinones stated, “Last year our team donned pink medical gloves in hopes of starting the conversation about breast cancer screenings to those we came in contact with and this year we wanted to have a more significant impact on brining awareness to this horrible disease.  We hope our rolling billboards, pink gloves and pink gowns catch attention and reminds women of the importance of performing self-screenings and getting an annual mammogram. Early detection and treatment has been proven to produce successful outcomes and we hope our small awareness campaign saves many lives.”

In addition Metro Atlanta Ambulance will be posting messages throughout the month of October on Facebook @maas911.com
