Making strides against breast cancer

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Making Strides Breakfast was held this morning at The South in downtown Jackson. WLBT's Maggie Wade was the mistress of ceremonies.

It's the kick-off event for the Making Strides against Breast Cancer Walk this fall.

Tracie Wade with the American Cancer Society says the breakfast is an opportunity to share with team leaders and other fund raisers, what services are provided for breast cancer patients. "It can make the difference between someone being able to get to treatment, someone being able to get a wig to make them feel better. The "Look Good, Feel Better" program to give them something to help deal with the issues they have with their skin from treatment. It's amazing the little things that matter when you're battling for your life," she said.

This year's walk is going to be October 26 beginning at the Mississippi State Capitol. To participate or for more information, go to this American Cancer Society website.
