Thousands take part in "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk

Always smiling Kayla had stage 3 breast cancer when she was diagnosed aged 24

The American Cancer Society held its annual "Making strides against Breast Cancer" Walk, and it's safe to say the walk lived up to it's name.

The Starkville Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha is celebrating survivors.

Organizers estimated more than 3,000 people would run or walk at the event.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and on Friday night, hundreds of people gathered for a pink-themed fundraiser.

This year's goal is to raise more than $37,000, which is used for breast cancer research and programs that provide services to breast cancer patients, such as Look Good, Feel Better and Reach to Recovery.

"I have lots of friends who've had breast cancer", survivor Candy Stieler said. Watson said she was blessed to not have to go through her battle alone, which is why she is more than happy to fight for those who can't fight for themselves.

Windberg was diagnosed with breast cancer in February.

Windberg said having breast cancer at 44 years old is a testament to how young someone can have the disease. Wilkerson's mother is also a survivor.

These rates highlight the importance of detecting breast cancer early when treatments are more effective.

"I wish we weren't doing this", Dr. Norris said. I wish there wasn't a reason to be here.
