While Kelly Partrick was receiving her last chemotherapy treatment at Baptist's Hederman Cancer Center, the echoes of fire truck sirens started becoming louder and closer to the center.

Within a few minutes, a pink fire truck named "Cindy" came wheeling to the front of the cancer center along with the Jackson, Miss. fire department behind it. A fireman, named Sam Jackson, sporting his pink fire suit, jumped out of the pink fire truck with pink flowers stated, "We are here to surprise Kelly."

Jackson was college roomates with Partrick's husband, Glen. Jackson is part of the National Pink Heals Tour traveling around areas of the US spreading love and hope to women in their fight against cancer.

Jackson came to surprise and celebrate Partricks last chemo treatment and walked around Jackson Oncology Associate's outpatient chemotherapy area giving away pink flowers.

As cancer patients and their loved ones left the cancer center, they signed the pink fire truck and had photos made with the firemen.
