TYLER — Today in Tyler, East Texans came in droves to downtown Tyler to support breast cancer awareness.
This all started a few years ago when a Tyler firefighter's wife got cancer.
To raise funds for the family, the department raised $12,000 by selling pink t-shirts and the event has been growing ever since.
In 2010, the Tyler Firefighters Care Fund donated more than $20,000 to organizations that support the fight against cancer.
