Walk For The Cure sign up underway

East Texas women are on a mission to help find the cure for breast cancer.

Fundraising is going on right now for women attending the Dallas/Fort Worth Susan G. Komen Walk For A Cure.

Sheri Oldham of Longview is just one of the thousands. Her goal is to raise $2,200 from sponsors and is walking in honor of her two cousins who developed breast cancer.

"I don't want to lose anyone in my family, that's why it's important for me. I want my daughters to be healthy and I want the cure to be found soon so that's why it's important."

The 60 mile walk will be held November 7th in the D/FW area. And, for all you walkers, there is still time to sign up.
