A small group of Turlock Firefighters took time out of their day Friday morning to deliver an informational message to a first-grade class at Earl Elementary after a boy named Logan, the son of Kerry Goman-Rocha, was teased by classmates for wearing pink for breast cancer awareness.

Early in the morning Kerry ran into Turlock Fire Department Captain Frank Saldivar at Turlock High School. Saldivar was dropping off pink-t-shirts for THS staff members to wear for breast cancer awareness month, which is October.

Kerry told him about how her son had come home crying because he was being teased for wearing a pink shirt for breast cancer awareness by some of his classmates.

Earl Elementary School was unaware of the teasing and Kerry had not told the school about it.

Saldivar contacted on-duty firefighters Tony Nascimento, Kevin Forsythe and Andrew Quinby, who decided to pay Logan’s class a visit.

“It was a great opportunity to talk to the kids about the tools we use on our engine and how they help to save lives,” said Nascimento. “And in October we wear pink shirts as one of our tools to help save lives.

“It was all about Logan. He got teased but had the courage to keep wearing his pink shirt. It was a good chance to acknowledge him and to talk to the kids about what is going on in school and to raise awareness about breast cancer.”

Kerry was delighted to hear the firefighters were going to visit his class shortly after she ran into Saldivar.

“I cried when I received the call this morning and thought how touching it was that these men would go out of their way to do this, not only for my son, but for all the little boys who are representing breast cancer awareness!! Thank you TFD! This mama is so appreciative for your generosity and heart! You are true heroes!” she posted on Facebook.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
