Real men wear pink

Kate Putra GSAM1 GSAM2

A fleet of pink fire trucks donned with firefighters adorned in pink gear made several special stops at Advocate Health Care hospitals to help raise awareness about cancer and show support for women. It’s all part of the Pink Heals Tour, where the firemen get showcase their support with plenty of hugs and good cheer. The tour made stops at Sherman Hospital in Elgin, Ill., Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, Ill., Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Ill., and Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill.
