Making Strides against Breast Cancer
The D’Iberville Civic Center was painted pink this morning. The American Cancer Society’s ‘Making Strides against Breast Cancer’ walk had their kickoff event.
The walk won’t be until October, but men and women interested in participating and being team leaders packed into the center to find out how they can help.
Since 1991, the ACS has helped more than 4.8 million women in need and they continue that charge today.
Susan LeBlanc, a survivor herself, was on hand to show a more risqué way to check for the cancer while also telling her story of survival and the struggles of getting her life back on track. “It is so hard to get your life back and it takes years to go through chemo, radiation, time out of work, surgeries. So when that happens, you lose confidence, you lose self-esteem. I’m here to promote Breast Cancer Burlesque and to motive the crowd that fundraising is so needed.”
