Thanks for Your Support
I'd like to send a heartfelt thank you to the men and women of the Eagle River Fire Protection District. In addition to serving our community and keeping us safe the members of ERFPD have volunteered their time to support patients at Shaw Regional Cancer Center.
During the month of October ERFPD donned hot pink shirts to raise awareness and sold those shirts in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month and Shaw's Pretty In Pink community-wide initiative.
Then in the month of November many ERFPD members grew their mustaches and played an integral role in putting on Shaw's prostate awareness event at Crazy Mountain Brewery. They brought their families great energy sold t-shirts and beers tickets and provided some of the best mustaches in the contest!
In total the fire department helped raise over $2500 for cancer patients in the two months and played a significant role in making both events successful. They continue to find ways to support Shaw and our patients. I am honored to work together to support the cancer patients of our community and I look forward to working together again.

How exercise can help combat fatigue
When hit with a bout of fatigue, it can be tempting to take a nap or give into a day of lounging. Counterintuitive as it may seem, getting up and participating in low- to moderate-intensity exercises when experiencing fatigue has been shown to help boost energy levels and reverse fatigue-related symptoms, according to multiple studies.
Where to Go for Care
When you or someone you love experiences an illness or injury, it’s sometimes hard to know where to go for medical care. The goal is to find the right level of care, at the right time and at the right cost. Distinguishing between primary, urgent and emergency care can make all the difference.
