LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Pink fire engines and pink firefighters showed up at an East Texas school Thursday.

The 'Pink Heals' fire truck pulled up in front of Longview's Hudson Pep school to honor three school employees.

The three ladies are in remission or currently fighting cancer, and the school organized a day of appreciation for their courage and dedication to the school.

Kids and friends signed the pink fire engine in a show of support.

"This is really a life altering thing, to know that you have this kind of support from the community and from your peers; it's just overwhelming, really," says cancer survivor Sharon Jenkins.

The ladies were honored with flowers and cheers from the student body at Hudson Pep.
