Local woman to participate in ‘Survivor’s Parade’
In April 23 Issue

Pat Hopper of Russell County has been chosen to walk in the "Survivor's Parade" for Breast Cancer survivors at this year's Kentucky Oaks.

The Survivor's Parade, sponsored by Kroger, was first hosted by Churchill Downs for Kentucky Oaks. Participants are selected from online nominations.

Pat was nominated by a coworker and was selected as one of 137 brave breast cancer survivors. Before the race, the pink parade takes an honorary walk around the track.

But Pat plans on taking other brave cancer patients with her.

To remember all of those who are fighting cancer and in memory of those who have lost the battle, Pat is asking everyone to submit names which will go on a scroll that Pat will carry with her on her walk.

Pat says, no matter what type of cancer, she wants to honor those who have had to fight this dark disease. The walk will be held May 6th at 5pm and will televised.

As an added note, Pat is also the team captain of Stephen's Pipe and Steel Relay for Life team, "Steel Fighting." The funds raised at Relay for Life go to the American Cancer Society.

Year to date, here is how those funds have specifically helped those in Russell County:

In 2010, the American Cancer Society assisted 25 Russell County cancer patients with 72 free services and programs. Hope Lodge in Lexington provided 100 nights of free lodging to four Russell County cancer patients saving those patients approximately $12,500 in motel expenses.

This year, as of March 31st, 25 patients have received 51 free services. Two Russell County patients stayed free of charge at Hope Lodge for a total of 50 nights. This was a savings of $6,250 to those patients and their families.

Everyone knows someone who has had cancer. You can help in the fight against cancer. There is still time to start a Relay for Life team.

Or just come out and celebrate our brave survivors at the Relay for Life walk on Friday, June 24 starting at 6 p.m. at the Charlene Harris Learning Center. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear inspiring stories from survivors and caregivers.

There will be food, games for the children and prizes. All Russell Countians are invited to come out with their families.

If you can't be there to support the Walk, support the Relay for Life by attending fundraisers that are organized by local Russell County teams. Only together can we find a cure.

If you would like to get involved in the Relay for Life call Brooke Carey at 606-678-0203.
