Breast Cancer Survivor Taking Fight On The Road

She's survived cancer and now she wants to inspire East Texans to join the fight.   The Longview woman has turned her prized possession into a big message and some East Texas high school students helped put together this "rolling testimony."  

Believe or not, this shiny pink Harley Davidson used to be blue, but owner Dayna Cooper says it now carries a lifesaving message.  

"People are going to see it and they're going to ask, and I'm going to say 'hey, I'm a survivor,'" she says.

Dayna has been a survivor of stage four breast cancer for two years. Now she wants to spread awareness on the road through her trike.   

"I will actively ride this motorcycle...it is going to be a rolling testimony."

Finding inspiration from Dayna, some Pine Tree High School students are putting the finishing touches on it

"That's an amazing thing to overcome and it feels really good to be turning in the bike and that was for a good cause and to watch her smile over this, it's just a good feeling," says senior Jordan Carruth.

Dayna hopes her trike will raise awareness and help put the brakes on breast cancer. 

"If I can keep one person from going through what I went through, then I've done my job with that motorcycle," she adds.

You can see the breast cancer trike in person at the East Texas Auto and Cycle Show February 16 through the 18 at the Harvey Convention Center in Tyler.
