FORT HOOD (October 23, 2012) --- Cancer survivors and family members of those who lost their battles against cancer signed pink fire trucks and a pink police car Tuesday at Fort Hood to underscore the need for awareness about women's health issues.
Dozens of soldiers and military family members showed up at the Clear Creek Post Exchange on Tuesday.
Each year the "Guardians of the Ribbon" drive across the country to deliver a message of hope and support to all cancer victims.
The non-profit organization currently has 57 pink trucks that are part of the effort.
Firefighters from all over the country have donated their time for the cause.
Aaron Janssen, a firefighter from Victoria, said his mother died from cancer in August and the Pink Heals Tour has been a way to remember her.
"She was diagnosed with lung cancer and passed away on Aug. 9 of this year, I was a big supporter of her and I stood behind her and these guys stood behind her the whole time and I just want to continue her message and continue to stand behind women," Janssen said.
