I got a chance to see the Pink Heals Fire Trucks on I-275 yesterday. What a sight!! Here is the web address for the Pink Heals Tour:
My wife Helen Ann Kaup Carnes lost a battle to the death with breast cancer nearly 23 years ago. She fought valiantly for 4 years but lost the war. She never got to celebrate her 40th birthday. When I first heard the Fire/Rescue Service and IAFF members had gotten involved with Pink Heals, all I could do was smile because I knew they would get involved in a big way like always. Her struggle may have been a little less hard on her if she had the Pink Heals guys and gals on her side.
Here is what the Lector found on the Pink Heals website:
For women in their twenties, thirties and early forties, a cancer diagnosis and the journey that follows can be especially devastating. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments can strip young women of their looks, confidence and sense of self – in what would ordinarily be the prime of their lives. After months of exhaustive treatments, finding a ‘new normal’ can be difficult, especially amidst pressure to move forward and get on with life. Pink Heals is dedicated to helping young women regain their strength and beauty with fun, confidence building programming and events. Ladies, put on your favorite heels… it’s time to reclaim your mojo!
Pink Heals Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit organization and is solely dependent on the generosity of donors.
Please join Pink Heals in supporting young women who are recovering from cancer treatment. I think the Pink Heals tour and the Pink Heals Foundation may be separate organizations. The intent is the same. Support your women who are fighting cancer.
And oh yes, have a nice Day?
