You may notice some of Lambton County’s paramedics sporting blue epaulets. Paramedic Grant Purdy says they are hoping to raise awareness of prostate cancer. “Cancer affects everybody,” says Purdy. “We want to make cancer and prostate cancer more visible.” Purdy adds prostate cancer is very treatable so the paramedics hope to make the people they see think twice about getting a test. About one in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
