From Making Strides Hawaii:
Every person who walks in an American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event has a reason for walking, and every person touched by breast cancer has a story to tell. These breast cancer survivor stories remind us that the Making Strides event is more than a walk it's a celebration of courage and an effort to save lives. Let the stories below inspire you to join us.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks are the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting communities with a shared determination to help free the world from the pain and suffering of breast cancer. Passionate walk participants raise critical funds that enable the American Cancer Society to fund innovative research; provide free, information and support to anyone touched by breast cancer; and help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.
It's the determination and passion of people like you that is making it possible for the American Cancer Society to end the pain and suffering of breast cancer. When communities participate in Making Strides walks they are helping those currently fighting the disease, those who may have to fight it one day, and those who will avoid a diagnosis due to education and risk reduction. When you walk and raise money for the Making Strides program, you join more than one million volunteers across the country united by a common purpose. Together, we can ensure that no one facing breast cancer will ever have to walk alone.
