Teams make up the majority of our participants and fundraising for the MORE THAN PINK Walk. We can’t thank our teams enough for how they got creative and worked together to fundraiser during a time when asking for donations is especially hard. This video shows some shout-outs from this year’s team captains to their teams, plus some throwback photos of teams at our past events in Amarillo, Lubbock, North Texas, and Wichita Falls.  Watch now >>

 

A patient’s breast cancer journey is already hard, and during a global pandemic it gets even more complicated. Our Walk Chair and three-time breast cancer survivor, Sheila Taylor-Clark, sat down with Dr. Kevin Thomas from United Regional, Dr. Kevin Tulipana from Cancer Treatment Centers of America, and Dr. Rakhshanda Rahman from University Medical Center to talk about breast cancer during the time of COVID-19.  Watch now >>

 

We honor and remember the loved ones we’ve lost to this disease. Breast cancer has taken too many mothers, sisters, fathers, daughters, sons, aunts, and friends. We won’t stop fighting this disease until no one has to hear the words “you have breast cancer.”  Watch now >>
