Pink Heals Tour 2009

  1. 1. In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this slideshow is dedicated to all the women in our lives.<br />I’m Robert Avsec and I’m a CALIBRE employee-owner. I’m also a retired Fire Battalion Chief who served 26 years with the Chesterfield Fire & EMS Department outside Richmond, Virginia.<br />This past August I attended the DoD Fire & Emergency Services Conference in Dallas, Texas working at the conference for our client, IMCOM Fire & ES. Now I’ve been around a lot of fire trucks in my day, but I’d never seen one like this…<br />Click to Advance<br />
  2. 2. Guardians of the Ribbon<br />Pink Heals<br />Fire Rescue International Conference<br />Expo Floor<br />August 28, 2009<br />Click to Advance<br />
  3. 3. Our pink fire trucks with all the signatures, tells a story of sacrifice and a will to live. It also represents hope and love for those affected by cancer letting them know we care. Can you imagine the power behind the image of all of us in pink, to someone who worries day-to-day that they may not live? I think it will give them more energy to fight this disease and at the very least, bring us all together around the globe for a great cause. Guardians of the Ribbon is a non-profit organization that will continue this effort for years to come.<br />Dave Graybill, Visionary (My edit)<br />“Pink Heals”<br />Click to Advance<br />

  6. 6. My sister-in-law, who is an 8-year survivor. <br />Apologies to my dear Mother, Mary Lou Avsec, who fortunately has survived her battle with skin cancer for so long, that I can’t remember how many years. We love you both dearly!<br />Click to Advance<br />
  7. 7. Join Dave, and all the followers of the “Pink Ribbon Tour”, in showing your support for the women in you lives, by wearing pink on October 25-27, 2009.<br />Join the “Pink Ribbon Tour” by clicking here!<br />Click to Advance<br />
  8. 8. As Dave told me in our conversation, when I met him at FRI in Dallas, the Pink Ribbon Tour is about more than just cancer and its impact on our women…it’s about all the health issues that affect women more than men in our country. Cancer and heart disease are just two of the diseases that have a more devastating impact on women than on men in our country.<br />Click here for Go Red for Women<br />Click to Advance<br />
  9. 9. My “champion” meets former LPGA Tour star, and victorious Captain of both the 2005 Solheim Cup Team and 2009 Junior Solheim Cup Team, Nancy Lopez, at the 2009 Solheim Cup August 2009 in Sugar Grove, Illinois.<br />I know first-hand that of which Dave speaks. My wife and partner and best friend of 30 years, the “unsinkable” Wilma Avsec, suffered a heart attack and pulmonary emboli in both of her lungs on February 4, 2004. She spent five days in CCU and a total of 11 days in the hospital total. She’s the “light of my life” and I’m so thankful every day that she survived her ordeal and is with me today.<br />
