You Won't Believe What These Firefighters Did for One of Their Own With Breast Cancer

You Won't Believe What These Firefighters Did for One of Their Own With Breast Cancer

Kathy Babcock has been a firefighter and a paramedic in the Pasco County fire department of Land-O-Lakes, Fla., for three decades.

This year, Babcock was diagnosed with breast cancer and is now undergoing chemotherapy. 

According to Little Things, she will be undergoing hormonal reduction injections, a bilateral mastectomy, and radiation. 

Recently, every fire station in Pasco County banded together to create a video called "Operation Make Kathy Smile" to show their support for Kathy.

The video begins with crew members dancing to Bruno Mars' hit song "Uptown Funk."

Then the video quickly takes a more heartfelt turn as the Pasco County Fire rescue crew truly show their love and support to one of their own.

Watch the incredible video below and see for yourself. 

Little Things reports that Babcock broke down in tears when her department surprised her with the video, a room full of flowers, balloons, and well wishes.
