Fullerton firefighters recently wore and sold pink “Give Cancer the Boot” T-shirts, raising nearly $12,000 for the wife of one of their own members. Burt Allen is a Fullerton firefighter, and his wife, Sue, has been battling non-small cell lung cancer since March 2005. She has received multiple grants from The Vanguard Cancer Foundation for assay tests. The firefighters donated their funds raised that day to the foundation. Pictured above are the firefighters, along with Burt (left of the check) presenting the funds to Long Beach’s Dr. Robert Nagourney of Rational Therapeutics (in necktie), who was honored by The Vanguard Cancer Foundation for his extensive research.
In the pink!
