Some quick facts:

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among women.
Each year, it is estimated that over 252,700 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and more than 40,500 will die. Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,470 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 460 will die.
On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, and 1 woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes.
Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors are alive in the United States today.

DISAPPOINTMENT IN THE EAST BAY TIMES’ EDITORIAL ABOUT THE RACE FOR MOFD BOARD

As proud front line firefighters and union members, we were disappointed in the East Bay Times’ editorial about the race for Moraga-Orinda Fire District Board.

Instead of considering the range of genuine public safety issues, the Times opted for yet another boilerplate anti-union screed, with the proud fire service professionals on the ballot reduced to caricatures. That the Times’ broadside at these individuals was published on September 11 th seemed an especially nasty shot.

The fact is that Moraga-Orinda faces critical public safety issues, the same as countless other agencies: staffing to meet an unreal fire risk, effective medical response when seconds count, ensuring the people we serve get the service they deserve, rather than the one politicians deign to offer.

Nobody understands these issues better than those who have lived and worked them. Greg Baitx, Michael Donner and Steve Danziger have done just that. They are the right choice for Moraga-Orinda.

- Vince Wells, President

Remembering the almost 3,000 people who lost their lives and over 6,000 others who were injured on September 11th, 2001. We would also like to remember the countless others who have died since the attacks as a result of cancers or other respiratory diseases.

LODD: CONTRA COSTA COUNTY FIRE CAPTAIN PETER ALIOTTI

The Contra Costa County Fire Protection District and Contra Costa County Firefighters, Local 1230 are saddened to announce the passing of one of their own in the line of duty.

Retired Contra Costa Fire Captain Peter Anthony Aliotti passed away on August 28, 2018 at the age of 62.

Brother Aliotti had a successful career as a Contra Costa County firefighter, rising to the rank of captain before his retirement in 2012. He worked at many stations but mainly in Concord, Pleasant Hill, and Antioch.

Pete’s kind heart, always willing to help attitude, sense of humor, and love of life has endeared him to family, friends, colleagues, and the communities that he has served. He lived well, laughed often, and loved much.

Pete Aliotti is survived by his second wife, Cori (Stopka), daughters Ashley and Sara Bellafronte (Vincent), mother, siblings, and their significant others, and many nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 5 p.m. with a vigil at 7 p.m. at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church, in Clayton.

A Celebration of Life Mass will be on Friday, September 14, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church in Clayton.

One of our partners in EMS and who we work side by side with is in need of help. Brittany Tucker is one of our EMTs for AMR here in Contra Costa County for the past 5 years and is currently finishing paramedic school. She survived a brain aneurysm in 2012 only to continue to pursue her dreams and family legacy as a paramedic.

Tragically she has had 2 brain aneurysms this last Sunday, August 26th and is in the ICU. With permission from her family a co-worker of hers has created a GoFundMe account on her behalf to help her with any medical expenses so she can focus on healing.

Thank you for reading and considering.
