Building a National Support Group for our Women

Well it has been about three weeks since we have gotten back from our tour and the calls are still coming in to see when the next tour will start. We have departments that we did not even visit who have started their own Cares Enough to Wear Pink program, like Fishers Indiana. Siddens Fire Apparatus outside Austin Texas called and donated another fire truck. Also Company Two Fire Apparatus in South Carolina wants to donate two more trucks as well. We will need to have more drivers next year and I am hoping that different departments will let a few of their personal join our group for the tour. I am even thinking about purchasing a tank and rap cammo pink and have it shoot pink shirts out of the turet, we will pull the tank behind one of the fire trucks. On the side of the tank, it will say something like, "WE ARE AT WAR FOR OUR WOMEN". I am so impressed by the leadership by so many Chiefs and community leaders that saw the color pink as a tool to inspire thousands to support all our women who battle cancer and the ones who have not been affected to remind them to get their yearly checks.

We had an event in downtown Tempe AZ, it was the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event put on by the American Cancer Society. We will also do a golf tournament every year that will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Affiliate here in phoenix at the TPC
of Scottsdale.
