Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Ms. Click is a teacher at Leon High School. For the last 10 years she's been fighting cancer and winning.

"I am a survivor. For me it’s recurring, but I still fight it," added Click.

For the "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk" in Southwood, more than 100 Leon High School students showed up to show Ms. Click how much they admire and respect her.

"She's just great, a great person and we're here to support her,” said student Lauren Mader.

"I was just overwhelmed and teary eyed when I saw how many students were here,” added Click.

Organizers of the event say these walks all across the country are making a difference by helping to raise money that goes toward research, patient services and education.

"What's great about it is that people learn this disease is not a death sentence. You can survive it just like me," said Cari Roth, a Making Strides Against Breast Cancer participant.

Cari Roth and Marsha Click are living proof that breast cancer is battle that can be won. Organizers say the event raised almost $70,000, money that will be used to fund breast cancer research.
