Cicero Unveils Pink Senior Services Bus For Breast Cancer Awareness

Cicero is going pink!

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, one of the Senior Services buses was pained pink to support the cause. The bus showcases its support for raising awareness of one of the diseases that most afflict women and some men.

“Many of our seniors have been breast cancer survivors,” said Town President Larry Dominick. “I think we all know someone who has faced this challenge. This is just a small gesture of support from the Town.

Dominick was joined by Town Assessor Emo Cundari, Town Collector Fran Reitz and trustees Larry Banks, Dennis Raleigh and Victor Garcia during the unveiling of the bus on October 22.

Ryan Chlada, director of Senior Services, praised the paint job by Danny Wolf.

“Danny did a great job and I think it is a wonderful gesture to our breast cancer survivors that we show our support throughout the Town when transporting our senior residents to their appointments and meetings,” Chlada said.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is held annually in October to promote early detection through regular mammograms for women over 40. The month gained national attention several years ago when the National Football League went pink during October and the movement can now be seen in many different organizations and events.
