West Chester Hospital supports Pink fire truck transformation | Health
WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) - A fire truck from the Deerfield Township fire department got a pink makeover with the support of West Chester Hospital.
DTFD unveiled its newly transformed PINK fire truck earlier this year with the support of West Chester Hospital. It has since toured the region, even traveling as far as Ohio University, providing breast cancer awareness and educational opportunities.
Through a donation by West Chester Hospital, DTFD created a pink “wrap” for one of their trucks (nicknamed Linda Kay after the mother of a firefighter), and allow it to be signed by breast cancer survivors and family members of those who lost their battle with cancer. The fire truck, the only pink truck in the Greater Cincinnati region, is now covered in handwritten messages of hope and encouragement.
“On behalf of West Chester Hospital and UC Health, we are honored and proud to be a part of the Deerfield Township Fire Department Pink Truck Project,” says Daskalakis. “Spreading awareness about breast cancer and other women’s health issues is fundamental to our mission of education and healing in our communities.”
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, West Chester Hospital Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Daskalakis formally presented a check to DTFD Chief Chris Eisele and Janet Adams of the Deerfield Women’s Club, in sponsorship of their initiative to “drive for a cure.”
