Fighting to Find a Cure

The Burkburnett Fire Department is helping fight another battle. They are now fighting to find a cure for breast cancer and their campaign 'Fighting To Find A Cure' runs through the end of the month.

When the Burkburnett Fire Department is not fighting fires, they are fighting to find a cure for breast cancer. Firefighters are supporting those battling breast cancer by raising funds.

The department said all the profits from their campaign 'Fighting To Find A Cure' will go to the local Susan G Komen Foundation of Wichita Falls.

The department has already raised nearly $4,000, selling 335 shirts, and now are having to purchase more.

If you want to help, Burkburnett firefighters will be selling pink shirts, adults are $15 and Kids are $10. You can buy the shirts at fire station three or find the firefighters at the United.
