Our Town Guymon: Pink Heals
Mon, 27 Apr 2015 23:41:14 GMT —
Adorned in bright pink paint, the fire trucks and police cars of the "Pink Heals" chapter in Guymon, Oklahoma, are adding color and happiness to the lives of those who need it most.
The national non-profit has its branch in Guymon that services the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles.
Volunteers use the colorful vehicles to brighten the days of people suffering with cancer or other serious illnesses.
??When they??re going through something hard, sometimes it??s just good to have a perfect stranger every once in a while to show up, said Vice President of the Oklahoma Panhandle Chapter, Trudy Hart. ??Give [them] a hug, tell you we love you and that we??re here for you. Who doesn??t like a pink fire truck and a pink police car???
The organization also provides funds for families -- making sure the raised money stays within the Panhandle community.
Recently, the organization visited the home of a 2-year-old girl in Amarillo, Brynna Hudson. She suffers with Leukemia and has been going through Chemotherapy for months. Her parents said a visit from Pink Heals is just what it takes to lift her spirit.
??This is the second trip that Pink Heals has made down here to see Brynna and we??re very thankful for their support and to know that you??re not in this fight alone so it means a lot to have a lot of people on your team backing you,?? said Kyna Hudson, Brynna??s Mother.
Representatives with the Oklahoma Panhandle Chapter say they??ve made over 50 trips to people within the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles.
