"We're selling pink t-shirts and other things to raise funds," said Steven Wieczor, firefighter with the Tyler Fire Department. "Half of the money we give away to local and national cancer organizations and then the other half we usually distribute it to our firefighters and their families if they are battling cancer."

You can buy your pink wear at the Tyler firefighters booth at the East Texas State Fair, the Gallery Main Street and at the Holiday Inn on South Broadway.
