Almost everyone of us has been affected by breast cancer, whether we have had a friend, family member, or coworker battle now is the time that we come together again to fight this deadly disease. The Susan G. Komen More Than Pink Walk is coming up soon for us in Tyler and all across East Texas. The date is set for Sunday, October 24th beginning with a virtual opening ceremony at 9:00 a.m.

With the event so quickly approaching now is the time to work to put your team together now and start raising funds. To help you with this there is a Walk Facebook Group that is already encouraging others you can join here.  There is also a remembrance wall where you can share a special tribute of someone you're honoring here.
