UTICA – If you run into some Utica firefighters, you may notice they look a little different, and that’s because they’re wearing pink to help fight breast cancer.

Throughout the month, Utica firefighters wore pink T-shirts to help promote awareness about breast cancer. The shirts were also sold to the public to raise funds for a local woman who is currently fighting breast cancer.

Today, the Utica Fire Department presented a $3,000 check to the woman and her family to help with medical expenses. Erin Angiulli says she’s grateful for all of the support she’s received from the community.


“It’s been one of the most growing experiences of my life,” Angiulli said. “I’ve never felt more loved or taken care of. I keep saying that I’ve got so much support, I don’t have to do anything but show up and fight cancer.”

The funds given were a team effort from the Utica Professional Firefighters Association, the Valley Kids Care Foundation and the Upstate Thread on Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
