Founded in 2007, the Pink Heals organization drives pink fire trucks, police cars and ambulances across the nation, making stops to raise awareness and money to help in the fight against cancer.  As Catherine Goetze reports, community members, cancer patients and cancer survivors joined the pink trucks at Good Shepherd to thank the firefighters for their show of support.

In addition to visiting with the traveling firefighters, guests also signed the pink trucks which are now on their way to show support in the next stop on their tour.
