RIDGEFIELD, N.J. -- After they helped extinguish an Easter Sunday blaze in Ridgefield, firefighting members of Pink Heals Bergen County discovered that the homeowner was waging her own battle -- against breast cancer.

So this Sunday they returned for a very different type of visit.

AnnMarie Carrier “was truly surprised” when Pink Heals members united with Ridgefield firefighters to come by with flowers and heartfelt support, said her daughter, Danielle.

“AnnMarie is one the sweetest people we’ve ever met and her entire family blew us away with their kindness and warmth,” Pink Heals organizers John LaFalce and Kacy Knight said. “She’s got some pretty amazing people in her corner.

“She can definitely count us among them.”

Members of the support group thanked Ridgefield Deputy Fire Chief John Hoffman, Battalion Chief David Brierty, Fort Lee Deputy Fire Chief Chris Ipek and Ridgefield Police Chief Thomas J. Gallagher for their assistance -- and Sunset Florist for the flowers.
