Fight Back Express Stops in Montgomery

There was a special bus in the capital city on Monday with a much bigger purpose than transportation.

The Fight Back Express is on a national tour to try to raise more awareness about cancer. The American Cancer Society hopes the bus will help legislators understand there's a need for more funding to fight the deadly disease.

Just this year cancer is estimated to kill more than 564,000 Americans.

After its tour in Montgomery the Fight Back Express will head to Birmingham, Anniston and Huntsville.
