Cindy the Pink Fire Truck

Anniston firefighters welcomed Guardians of the Ribbon to one of the city’s fire stations. Orange Beach Fire fighters dressed in pink fire suits and in their pink fire truck from Lower Alabama attended a weekend fundraising event to bring awareness to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The pink fire truck, lovingly referred to as “Cindy” helps to spread the word on women’s cancer issues. Guardians of the Ribbon, Inc. Lower Alabama Chapter are the keepers of the fire truck. And board member, Sam Jackson says he has seen the rate for cancers in women unfortunately increase since he began with the non-profit in 2010. He says the symbolism of the campaign engages communities to support the fight.“Cindy” is part of the Pink Heals Tour. And, is covered in signatures from people she has met along the way. They sign in memorial as one who has survived, in support of someone currently fighting, or in memory of someone who fought the battle and lost. 19 year cancer survivor and Anniston resident, Judy Elders-who attended today’s event-says the fire truck means hope. The Anniston Fire Department also presented a check for $1,100 to Steel Magnolias.
