Th Annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Despite the rain Sunday morning, crowds marched for breast cancer awareness in South Burlington.

Its not a death sentence, theres so much research. So many medications theyre coming out with. I had a very aggressive form, and I am here ten years later, said survivor Jamie Holden.

The American Cancer Society had its 15th annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Hoping to bring survivors and their families and friends together to support the ones theyve lost, and those who have survived. More than 300 people normally show up in support of the cause.

Survivor Jamie Holden said events like this are really important.

It gives a lot of inspiration. The first year I was diagnosed ten years ago I came and walked. It really made me feel like I was part of a community and I wasnt alone. There were other people that had gone through it and I could get to the other side, Holden said.

The goal for this year was to raise $150,000, and the cancer society had nearly reached its goal before the event even started.

Rachel Norris walked for her aunt who passed away. She says she hopes raising money can find a solution to this disease and those who have lost someone to it are not alone.

Youre not alone, its almost been a year for me and I still cry once a week at least. Its a terrible disease, and it just takes so many loved ones, said Norris.

KCRA 3 spoke with several survivors at the march about their journey and mission to spread awareness and save lives.

Monica Burley, who found out she had breast cancer at age 40, said, I thought I was going to die, I was like who is going to take care of my children.

Her diagnosis had her fearing the worst but she said doctors took an aggressive approach and it saved her life.

So many people didn’t make it but I did and I thank God for that, she said.

Survivors say mammograms dont always detect cancer so if you suspect something is wrong you should advocate for yourself.
