Pink fire trucks along with firefighters in matching pink uniforms rolled into Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital on Sunday, the latest stop in their Pink Heals Tour. The crew delivered a message of hope and healing to cancer patients and survivors in our area. 365BarringtonTV Reporter Catherine Goetze was there and suited up to share the story.
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.
A special thanks to BHS-TV filmer and soon-to-be sophmore, Jack Coombs, for shooting the Pink Heals tour video at Good Shepherd Hospital this weekend along with our other recent 365BarringtonTV reports.
