A big roll in the fight against cancer

There was plenty of pink at Self Help Enterprises in Sterling on Thursday: pink clothes, pink hair, pink firefighters – there was even a pink mohawk, and there were a lot of folks tickled pink to see a brightly colored ambulance stop by for a visit. The Pink Heals Sauk Valley Chapter’s rolling reminder that what the world needs now is more love and less cancer stopped by Self Help to bring some smiles, raise awareness and let people battling cancer, survivors and those who have lost loved ones to the disease sign the Pink Heals truck. The truck is part of a national fleet of pink fire trucks that are on a mobile mission to deliver a smile and lend support to those whose lives have been touched by cancer. Trucks are manned by volunteers decked out in pink turnout gear, and the truck itself is a canvas for people who want to sign their names or offer words of support. Go to pinkfiretrucks.org for more information, or find Pink Heals Sauk Valley, IL Chapter for more on the local chapter.
