October 20th, 2013 WMDSF Magazine joined the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides at Jones Beach for their annual Breast Cancer walk. It was a day to remember. The beach flooded with pink shirts, laughter and stories of survival, cancer didn’t stand a chance in this crowd.
Women and Men of all ages came with their family and friends to support the fight against breast cancer. Even the dogs came out to show their support.
The Murray Family
One of the most touching moments of the day was meeting the courageous 80 year old Joan,who is a Breast Cancer survivor. Our whole team praised Joan for being such an inspiration to us all, to never give up!
Throughout our walk, we came across stories of survivors. Amazing women who were determined to not let cancer dictate how their lives were going to turnout, come hell or high water.
Along the way we met two other women by the name of Bonnie and Pat. Bonnie, on the right, has been a survivor for the past 5 years, after overcoming Breast Cancer, Bonnie later found out the cancer had returned in a different location. Not willing to be defeated by this beast called cancer, Bonnie once again came out of the battle on top. Pat, on the left, conquered Breast Cancer 8 years ago, and hasn’t looked back since!
And my good friend from High School Tameka who is a young survivor of Breast Cancer. Proving that breast cancer can hit at any age.
WMDSF Magazine salutes, Joan, Bonnie,Pat and Tameka!
