Rockford (WIFR) -- Once used to help fight fires, a special pink firetruck is now being used to help woman with their fight against cancer.

Earlier today the Pink Heals Winnebago County Chapter unveiled a retired 1972 fire engine. It made its way from Cherry Vale Mall to South Beloit City Park for a ceremonial dedication. Those attending were then able to sign the firetruck "Sherry", which has been named after cancer survivor Sherry Gundrum. The purpose of the truck is to raise cancer awareness while spreading love and hope to the Stateline. All the money raised by Pink Heals goes directly to cancer victims.

The Pink Heals Firetruck is Winnebago County's first and was donated by the South Beloit Fire Department.
