REDLANDS, Calif. — Transportation staff members for a school district here are showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink shirts every Friday, Redlands Daily Facts reports.

Imogene "Vickey" Johnson, a bus driver for Redlands Unified School District and a two-time breast cancer survivor, spearheaded the effort to show support for others who are currently going through treatment or who have lost someone to the disease.
