Firm offers a lift to breast-cancer patient
A local business is showing their support for breast cancer research by painting one of their vehicles pink.
B&D Lift Trucks, which sells, services and trains people on the use of forklifts, has painted one of their vehicles pink to create awareness that October is breast cancer awareness month. The little forklift greets passersby with a 2.4-metre wide, 1.2-metre tall sign adorned with brassieres hoisted almost eight metres in the air.
“Deana Hill, my fiancé’s sister, is 39 with Stage 3 breast cancer and currently undergoing treatment,” said Angel Syrette, webmaster for the company, in an email. “In her honour, we put this promotion together to let her know she is loved and supported through these unsettled times.”
The truck can be seen at 2678 Sooke Rd. The business is accepting donations for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. For more information, go to cbcf.org.
