Breast Cancer Survivors Gather To Celebrate

Events continue this weekend for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Saturday, the annual Breast Cancer Survivor Luncheon took place.   For the 8th year, women in pink gathered in the ETMC Pavilion to talk about being a breast cancer survivor. This year's guest speaker, Judy Kayse, a 10 year survivor. She says events like this bring comfort in knowing she's not alone.  

"There is a sisterhood here and an energy, and we all rely on each other's strength, and when you see someone who is going through a trial of breast cancer, you are able to connect with them and give them your strength," said Judy Kayse.  Today's luncheon was put on by the Tyler affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Each year, more than 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
