 The St. John’s Regional Fire Department’s Passionately Pink 2012 pumper fire truck was a big hit at the Run for the Cure. Many people wrote messages on the pumper in memory of loved ones who have lost their battle with cancer, for survivors or for those currently battling the disease. Above, nine-year-old Hannah Bishop writes her message for her grandfather, Gerry Howlett, a cancer survivor and for her grandmother, Patricia Howlett, who died in 1994 of cancer.
