CORINNA, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A couple from Corinna decided to transform their 1972 Oliver Tractor to show their support against breast cancer.
Rob and Kelly Veazie have around 750 head of cattle on their dairy farm making for a lot of hard work and dedication. It's that lifestyle that they credit to what got them through the past year after Kelly was diagnosed with Breast cancer last November. After surgery, 4 rounds of chemotherapy and 32 treatments of radiation, she is now cancer free. To celebrate and help raise awareness about the disease the couple decided to repaint one of their tractors pink. "Oliver, the survivor" is now a pulling tractor that the couple enter in local parades and tractor pulls, bringing a smile to their face every time.
"Feels good to see this color pink tractor and know that I'm out there supporting all the women that are out there battling this disease," said Kelly Veazie.
The Veazie's Pink tractor will be on display this Saturday at Thunder Road Farms in Corinnna for the Banking For A Cure 5k walk. Registration is from 7:30 to 9am. It's $25 to enter and all proceeds will go towards the Maine Coalition Breast Cancer Service Fund, in efforts to find a cure.
