Allen Hosts Special Pink Fire Truck Event

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mustang Creek Estates of Allen invited the Pink Heals National Tour to the senior living community. Pink Heals is a global organization that partners with public safety organizations, local businesses, and families to bring communities together to make the art of giving personal again. The Pink Heals National Tour brings pink fire trucks and police cars to communities around the country to drive awareness and community support for those battling all types of cancer.

This event was especially important to Marlene Sullivan, a resident of Mustang Creek Estates of Allen, who is a breast cancer survivor. Sullivan was diagnosed in her early twenties and had to undergo a mastectomy. Her mother was also a breast cancer survivor, and researchers believe that the risk of being diagnosed nearly doubles when there is a family history of breast cancer. Sullivan enjoyed this special event where she had the opportunity to share her story with other residents and proudly signed the pink truck as many survivors do.
