Reba Mason drives around in a truck that's painted hot pink for breast-cancer awareness.

For the last six years, Reba Mason has been going through treatment for breast cancer. Now, her cancer has spread, and she doesn’t expect to beat it.

But she’s found a purpose in her life helping women get screened for breast cancer.

So Mason is a really memorable person. She’s a proud Texan, she wears a bright pink scarf on her head, and she drives around in a truck that’s painted hot pink for breast cancer awareness.

And when she came into the studio, I talked to her about her ongoing battle with breast cancer and the work she does now.
