ROSCOE (WIFR) -- Only few things that stand out more than an old cop car painted bright pink, but someone that does stand out more is the person that this new pink vehicle is named after.
Here's a first look at "Patty" an old squad car named for Patty Pann. The Roscoe woman was the first of many to sign the car Tuesday night. Despite never smoking, Pann was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer in august of 2013. Pann's a fighter going through 14 rounds of chemotherapy for tumors since found on her brain, spine ribs and other areas. Pann is in treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota and is currently in clinical trial for a month. She says pink never had been her color, but it is now.
"It's very humbling. It's very emotional to know that they stopped their evening,their plans with their family and came out to support my family and I. It means a lot. We appreciate it very much," Pann said.
Pink Heals is hosting the Pray Big 5K Run and Walk at Rock Valley College on Saturday, November 15th. The fundraising event will help Patty in her fight against cancer.
