Over 20,000 took part in the Komen race at NorthPark

During the year 1963 an 89 year old woman was diagnosed with breast cancer when many people didn't talk or know about the disease. However, people would say things that were not so motivating.

Conway from Balch Springs said that people only talk about the women who lost their lives with the cancer and not about the ones that fought back and survived.

Conway says that she confesses feeling completely hopeless but still kept her attitude towards the problem a positive one.

The results are for everyone to see when after 10 years of treatment including two mastectomies and a hysterectomy doctors confirmed now that body was cancer free.

Conway took part on Saturday morning's Komen Dallas Race for the Cure with an enormous, gleaming silver blow up fit as a fiddle of "50" to stamp the celebration of her analysis, to show others to what extent life can proceed after tumor is discovered.

She said that she cherished seeing all these young ladies. They were all fair valuable, and she feels sad for them.

Conway was just among the 20,000 individuals who accumulated outside Northpark Center for the 5k and survivors walk.

The occasion's development from the 800 individuals who went to the first Dallas occasion 31 years back shows the advancement that has been made in the battle against the infection, said Komen Dallas County official executive Jennifer Legere.
