The American Cancer Society (ACS) celebrated its annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Kickoff Tuesday evening at the Tannenbaum Cultural Center. Emcee, and survivor, Kathy Steele, gave an emotional testament of her experience and how it affected her and her loved ones. 
“When someone is facing breast cancer, it doesn’t just impact the individual, but everyone around them”, says Steele. “That is why I feel so passionate about the American Cancer Society’s mission. Breast cancer is a community issue and when a community is facing an issue, the only way to fix it is by coming together as a community.” 
Steele took a moment to thank all of the sponsors, supporting businesses and organizations and returning team-leaders. 
One returning team-leader mentioned was survivor, Joani Kruse. Kruse’s first time as a team-leader was last year. She set a goal for her-self of $500.00 Kruse exceeded her goal, reaching a total of $1,598.00! Because of her efforts, 106 people were able to receive rides to and from treatment. Team-leader, Kim Coons, raised $10,337.00, providing 206 nights of free lodging at Hope Lodge Facility to patients who needed it. 
Team-leader, Karen Monts has been walking with Making Strides for eight years. Last year, Monts raised a total of $14,938.00. Monts fundraising served towards helping 149 woman feel confident during treatment. 149 woman who could now attend the ‘Look Good Feel Better’ workshops. A program focused on raising self-confidence and a sense of security for woman facing appearance related side effects of cancer.
