You are all heroes!

If you are using this platform, I can assure you that you are a hero!  We had the pleasure of famous basketball coach, Phil Martelli, joining our Southwest FL Real Men Wear Pink Throwdown last night.  Coach Martelli gave an impassioned speach to the RMWP participants and described what it means to be a hero.  While he was speaking to them, his message is just as relevant to each of you, whether you are volunteers or staff.  I would highly recommend listening to this 10 minute message from Coach Martelli and together, we will CRUSH cancer!

Vaccinations prevent diseases

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says vaccinations have prevented countless cases of infections and diseases and have saved millions of lives. But, because routine health care visits have been interrupted during the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been a decline in the number of childhood vaccinations being prescribed and given. The pandemic is a good reminder about how getting your child’s vaccinations on time helps protect your child and your communities and schools from outbreaks.
