During October, workers with MC Professional Lawn Care and Snow Plowing of Kingsville, Ohio, are wearing custom-designed pink T-shirts that feature a white ribbon woven into the company name, in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“We’re supporting the cause,” said Mike Cliff, owner and operator. “There are six of us wearing them. We wanted to do our part.” The wife of one of Cliff’s friends recently underwent a double mastectomy, and the news hit home, he said. “It really catches your attention,” Cliff said. “The disease can be a lot closer than you think.”
