Breast Cancer survivors gather for education and support

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Women from all over gathered in East Texas today for the ETMC Pink Ribbon Getaway.

The event was held to educate and support breast cancer patients and survivers.

Women participated in a panel discussion with physicians, gained valuable nutrition tips and learned that laughter is the key to recovery.

"If you can find something genuienely funny about your situation to laugh about, you know you're on the road to healing," said Anne Barab, a speaker at the event.

The conference is supported by the Robert M. Rogers Foundation, Tyler Professional Fire Fighters Association, Tyler Professional Fire Fighters Association, the Mineola Fire Department, ETMC and JCPenney.
