The Pink Patch Project is an innovative public awareness campaign to bring attention to the fight against breast cancer and to support breast cancer research organizations in combating this devastating disease.
The project is a collaborative effort between the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs' Association and public safety agencies in Los Angeles County and beyond.
These agencies have partnered together to combat breast cancer by raising public awareness about the importance of early detection in the fight against the disease and to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment.
The Monterey County Peace Officers Association (MCPOA) has joined the efforts of other law enforcement agencies since 2017 to bring breast cancer awareness to the forefront after their own Executive Director completed her battle with breast cancer in March 2017 for the second time in five years and again in 2019 to remove a cancerous lymph node under the chest wall.
MCPOA has several items for sale as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All funds raised have been designated to the Breast Cancer Assistance Group of Monterey County (75%) and the American Cancer Society (25%).
