In honor of #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth, Retired Firefighter Technician Ruth Redmond shares her journey with breast cancer, and encourages others in the fire service to take precautionary steps and get your mammograms. Thankfully, she was able to catch it early. pic.twitter.com/6qUtRm368n— DC Fire and EMS (@dcfireems) October 22, 2021
