American Cancer Society's breast cancer walk boosts survivors in Orlando

- October is breast cancer awareness month and Saturday thousands of breast cancer survivors, caregivers, and supporters gathered to show their support in ending the disease.

The non-profit Organization "Living Life In Pink" held it's fourth annual Breast Cancer Walk Sunday at the Peter's Rock Frank Howard Activity Center in Starkville.

"The whole pink-ribbon, breast cancer awareness campaign is focused on getting your mammograms and doing self exams, it says if you are diagnosed you will get chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and then you're better, and we are going to celebrate and run in pink tutus", Rhonda Brewer of MI told Salon.

As a key part of its commitment to corporate social responsibility, Dubai Customs has been actively engaged in the worldwide breast cancer awareness campaigns for the last five years, with more than 1,000 women employees having benefitted. She started a nonprofit called Hope Scarves, which collects and sends scarves paired with stories from people who have cancer to others in cancer treatment.

What's important for Blake is family - which includes her husband, two children and three step-children - friends and quality of life. Many cancer survivors and students from the Government School for Visually Challenged participated in the walk. She said awareness would lead to early detection.

The American Cancer Society estimates that 2,550 men will be newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

"It's a bit scary, but I promise you it's scarier not to do it", she said. "You worry your cancer can come back but you move on".

"Hopefully one day, in the near future, we'll have a big parade in Downtown Starkville", says Young. It was to celebrate their scars, as badges of bravery in their battle with cancer. In addition, breast cancer awareness and educational materials as well as women healthcare literature were distributed.

"Yes, cancer is a survivable disease in many, many cases".

Umpqua Valley Christian athletic director assistant Sheri Gather said the school does not now host a breast cancer fundraiser, but does not rule our holding one in the future.

For Shakia Moore, of Daytona Beach, the walk is a way for her to remember not only her mother but also her father. "So I just can't imagine what we're going to be able to make happen in the next".
