Guardians of the Ribbon

the side of a pink fire truck is covered in written remembrances of cancer victims and survivorsWhen I visited California we saw the "Guardians of the Ribbon" in St. Helena. What a great bunch of guys doing such wonderful work. I wanted to share the "moment" with you in photos and remind my friends; male and female, to be checked regularly by your doctor. You can visit Pink Fire Trucks here or become a friend on Facebook here.
