GFD Raises Over $6,500 To Assist Local Cancer Patients

(GDN) — Another record-breaking year as the Goldsboro Fire Department helps battle breast cancer. 

The GFD presented the $6,560 check at Southeastern Oncology Medical Center in Goldsboro on Friday. 

David Grice, an Engineer with the Goldsboro Fire Department, helps coordinate the Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirt effort along with a committee of team members.

He is very pleased residents continue to support their effort year after year.

Grice says cancer has affected almost every family, and the funds raised stay local.

The money may be used to help cancer patients pay for gas to get to appointments or even stay in a hotel overnight if they’re being treated away from home.

This was the 9th consecutive year the Goldsboro Fire Department helped Southeastern Cancer Care’s Cures for the Colors with the sale of the special Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts. 

The t-shirts were on sale for $20 apiece throughout October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The slogan on the shirts says, “No One Fights Alone.”
