For release on August 24, 2018

Kokomo, IN --- Volunteers with the Pink Heals Tour rolled up to the Community Oncology Center at Community Howard Regional Health in Kokomo on Friday in a bright pink firetruck to offer roses and hugs to patients battling cancer.

The volunteers from Kokomo and as far away as Texas strode into the oncology center in trademark pink fire suits to pass out roses, hearty hugs and words of encouragement.

The crew added an extra special spark to patient Suzanne Fisher’s already special day by singing happy birthday to the 58-year-old, who was receiving chemotherapy treatment for metastatic breast cancer that has spread to her lymph nodes.
