Pink sheriff car worth it, year-round

Even though breast cancer awareness month has passed, and the pink ribbons have been put up until next year, we shouldn’t take breast cancer awareness with an “out of sight, out of mind” approach.

Sure, the month of October allows breast cancer to come to the forefront. According to the American Cancer Society, there are nearly 3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. More than one-quarter of a million new cases of breast cancer is diagnosed in U.S women each year.

That’s why it’s good to see a Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office has a Dodge Charger painted pink. It will serve as a reminder throughout the year.

The paint job cost $2,500. The design was created by Sheriff’s Deputy Ashley Mullen, who drives the pink Charger.

If it causes just one woman to get an exam, it’s worth it.
