Organizers say cancer can be one of the hardest things to cope with emotionally, physically and mentally, but a little positivism, makes challenges and struggles easier on patients.
Lisa Lovell with the cancer center says, "It is a tough thing to go through. It's not easy and the survivors are so strong and they just have so much strength because it takes a lot to get through it."

There are nearly 12 million cancer survivors in the united states and Stevens says she, along with her family, is proud to be part of that number.
