Lombard Firefighters recently presented a check for $2,005 from the sale of pink t-shirts, to the new Bhorade Cancer Center at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital.

The funds will be used for patient care and will help provide comforts to those undergoing cancer treatments.

Lombard’s pink shirt campaign allowed firefighters to voluntarily purchase and wear custom designed pink t-shirts throughout October, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The shirts were also available for public purchase and a community photo was taken of residents and firefighters wearing their pink shirts at Lombard Fire Department’s Open House on Oct. 12, 2016. The fundraiser was a combined effort with the Lombard Fire Fighters Union IAFF Local 3009 and the Village of Lombard.

“These t-shirts not only raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of screenings, but the sales of these shirts also positively impact our residents and neighbors who are undergoing treatment,” said Firefighter Bob Hopper, who organizes the annual fundraiser. “We chose to give back to Bhorade Cancer Center at Good Samaritan because we know that these donations will directly benefit Lombard residents.”

Good Samaritan Hospital provides services to Lombard residents and works closely with the Lombard Fire Department. The Bhorade Cancer Center offers a comprehensive and integrated cancer program, which includes state of the art medical treatment as well as the treatment as the person’s overall well-being.

Pink shirts will be available for order throughout Sept. 2017. Residents wishing to participate should email communications@villageoflombard.org to be notified when shirts become available for purchase. For more information please contact Assistant Fire Chief Jerry Howell at (630)620-5761.
