"When I went to the Surviving and Thriving program, none of us in that room had the same type of breast cancer; none of us had the same treatment. But, we had all heard those three scary words – ‘you have cancer.’ When I asked where the funds for the program came from, and they said the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund, I was so thankful to see the positive and tangible impact of the Ribbon Run. Every penny stays here and goes to the front lines of the fight. I owe this fund my life."
