In a unique initiative, to create awareness about Breast Cancer, John Deere replaced its traditional green color on a 5E Tractor to pink at the production line in the Montenegro factory in Brazil, to draw attention to the October Pink.
In partnership with SESI-SP, John Deere will take a Women's Health Mobile Unit to various cities in Brazil between October and December. The mobile unit is equipped with digital mammography for the examination of suspicious breast lesions and has an environment prepared to offer privacy, tranquility, and comfort to the patient. In addition, the unit tells a doctor to perform the Pap smear, aimed at preventing cervical cancer.
