Come Saturday, October 22, thousands will crowd the streets of downtown Little Rock for the 23rd annual Komen Arkansas Race for the Cure.
“Things have changed so much in the 50 years, you didn’t even talk about it 50 years ago and it was all hush hush, somebody might come up and say to you that my aunt had that,” said 50-year survivor, Marcia Williams.
Williams is no stranger to the Race for the Cure, in fact, she’s done it every year as she continues to be grateful for life events she didn’t miss.
“I’ve gotten to see my boys grow up and all so…and a little 13-year-old granddaughter,” added Williams.
“I’m blessed to not have breast cancer, but I have lots of friends who do and so that’s my reason for coming, in honor of them,” said volunteer Nancy Weber.
“Stay focused, enjoy the life that you do have, the moments and activities that you do sure and thank god for those times and don’t look at what could be, but enjoy what is,” added Brenda Jones, race-runner.
