Komen Race for the Cure, there’s quite a bit of history.”I’m a fifteen year survivor of breast cancer,” said Rivers.One that’s tied families together since it began in Maine fifteen years ago.Every year, some run and some walk, but all make strides towards finding a cure for breast cancer.”By the end of the day it’s probably five thousand, six thousand people supporting this from Maine,” said participant Vince Thompson.It adds up to funding for cancer research that participants hope will one day help countless others, who are headed down the same path they once traveled, which they now call survival.
