The Pink Fire Truck is ready to bring joy and strength to women battling cancer.

The Ponca City Fire Department hosted the dedication of the Pink Heals fire truck tonight in Blackwell.

The truck was named Hope in memory of a young girl who passed away of a rare abdominal tumor.

Hope’s family was their and the first to sign the truck.

Bridget Dollarhide, Hope’s mom said words can’t explain what this means to them.

“She touched so many people when she was here," Dollarhide said. "It’s just such an honor to know she is still doing that even now.”

Hope was seven when she was diagnosed and fought for six years before she passed away.

Fire Marshal, David Van Buskirk said the turnout was great, seemed like the whole town of Blackwell came out.

Pink Heals is an organization through fire departments that visit women struggling with cancer and support cancer events.

People sign the truck in honor of cancer survivors or in memory of those who lost their battle.
