In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness SERVPRO wears pink
Let's wear our pink and show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness. Together we are stronger!
October is not only know for Halloween, it is also Breast Cancer awareness month. 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in the course of their life time. Breast cancer is not only limited to women, less than one percent of all breast cancers have occurred in men. In honor of all the individuals battling breast cancer, I’ve decided to write about what you can do to join the fight.
1. You can wear a pink ribbon to symbolize breast cancer awareness. If you don’t have a pink ribbon, that's fine, just wear your pink clothes, and strut. Wanna make it a group thing? Collaborate with friends and families to rock the pink together. Just like our office girls.
2. Educate yourself and others! Early detection is crucial to a better outcome. Examine yourself for a lump, and if something doesn’t feel right, be sure to talk to a doctor. 3. Join a local fundraiser you can find a local one to you by visiting a website like the Susan G. Komer at <a5028659407947320801gmail-url" href="http://www.info-komen.org/site/TR?fr_id=6909&pg=entry" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" data-saferedirecturl="https://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.info-komen.org/site/TR?fr_id%3D6909%26pg%3Dentry&source=gmail&ust=1603496437849000&usg=AFQjCNE5oqNuCl_69DbI33bRShJjHw-nig">http://www.info-komen.org/site/TR?fr_id=6909&pg=entry .You can also create your own fundraiser! Collaborate with friends/family/ coworkers on creating an event to help raise money. You can hold a raffle, bake sales, giveaways, and so much more! 4. Have any hats or scarves you don’t use? Donate the to your local chemo center. Many individuals lose their hair due to their chemo sessions, what better way to help them shine, than with a new hat or scarf. Let's rise and fight together! No one should feel alone during a time like that. Let’s put on pink, spread awareness, cheer, strength, and joy. From all of us here at SERVPRO of Highland/North Redlands we are rooting for you! Stay Strong!
What we know about COVID-19
Yadi our administration assistant practices good hand hygiene.
At today's meeting with the Highland Chamber of Commerce we had 2 amazing guest speakers. Dr. Vladimir Cortez a Neurosurgeon with the Redlands community hospital and Pam Allen, director of emergency services for the Redlands community hospital. I want to share with you guys what they brought up in regards to the current pandemic we are facing.
Dr. Cortez went over what we can all do to help our situation during the COVID-19 spread. Because COVID-19 is a RNA virus, it's extremely difficult to find a vaccine for it. A RNA virus acts very sporadically and can’t determine how it will affect people individually. In other words you can be the healthiest person and still become affected by it or be a very unhealthy person and have no symptoms at all.
With the flu season approaching and COVID-19 spread, what we can do to help to stay healthy and get our immune systems up. Getting our immune system up doesn't mean we can prevent from getting it but just in case we do get the virus our body is strong enough to fight it. The virus attacks your lungs, not your immune system this is why anyone can get it.
Nurse Allen mentioned if you must go out keep wearing your mask if possible a N95 mask and practice good hand hygiene. If we all work together and do our part as a team we can help put an end to this. It's going to take a lot of time and patience but let's keep fighting.
Until next time, stay safe and maintain your space.
