A Grand Island woman wore pink every single day since 1998 when she was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

 

I will be out this Saturday for the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure at Buffalo Riverworks. This holds a special place in my heart because breast cancer does run in my family. I know the devastating affects of this horrible epidemic. BUT, I am all about early detection. A few months ago I went in for my first mammogram at the tender age of 35. It was uncomfortable, but I realize the benefits of this.

Linda Gray, who resides in Grand Island was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998. She routinely checks every 6 months since her battle back in 1998. In celebration of this, she has worn pink every single day for the past 20 years. She is also going to be recognized as the 2018 Race For The Cure Honoree.

 

"I get a chance to say publicly how grateful I am for a second chance at life," Linda said as she fought back tears. "I get to say thank you for family and friends and people that I don't even know, that have been there for me through my journey."

You rock Linda!

Join me, this Saturday for the Susan G Komen Race For The Cure
