Yesterday my wife and I took part in the Relay For Life at the South Florida Fairgrounds. She’s been fighting cancer for 20 years and has not given up yet. As her caregiver, I too have felt the burden of cancer from hearing bad news from her doctor and sitting in the waiting room as she underwent numerous surgeries to remove tumors from her lungs. Yet here we both were at the walk to celebrate her survival and my role in helping ensure that survival.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff was present at this event, and they brought with them something I’d never seen before. A pink patrol car. Talk about a strong source of support.
On the back window is this sign:
This pink patrol car is the first law enforcement vehicle its kind in the United States, and was created to show support for cancer research and cancer survivors. We want YOU to know that law enforcement’s role is not only to SERVE AND PROTECT our community, but to promote a sense of giving and support to anyone diagnosed with cancer.
WE CARE ENOUGH TO DRIVE PINK
