Ger goes to schools with Adrienne McCleery, an outreach nurse with BCI, who explains about breast cancer and teaches the girls how to self-check. After four rounds of chemotherapy, her tumor was gone.

"It was within a year that this had come up", Harpst said.

Max and his wife, Shirley, have been involved with the support group there the entire period, even in years he was cancer-free. "A routine mammogram has always been the most effective screening option for women, but the 3D screening option has greatly improved our ability to find very small cancers, even in very dense tissue."Understanding personal and family risk factors is also a key tool to improving breast cancer screening".

Women who haven't had a full-term pregnancy or have their first child after age 30 have a higher risk of breast cancer compared to women who gave birth before age 30.

"People say you are a survivor and I don't agree with that because I never felt like I was in jeopardy", said Bauman, who went through four rounds of chemo and underwent a double mastectomy in April.

Harpst also said she thinks it's important for people to be their own advocates, do their own research and decide what they want to do for themselves.

"It has been my anchor", she said. After her last round, she ran a 50K - a 32-mile run - the next day.

Ger believes that if there was more awareness among younger women, lives would be saved.

But genetic mutations are rare. But, beginning in 2017 the campaign grew to include all types of cancers that have the option for an early detection screening, giving teams around the league the opportunity to support different types of cancer research.

Ger Collins is an ambassador for Breast Cancer Ireland.

For many participating, they say this race has a special meaning. She said that she didn't have a history of cancer in her Haitian family, didn't smoke cigarettes, ate healthy and had none of the typical risk factors associated with breast cancer.

"For me, it also helps take the focus off of me", Williams said, "from wondering about what does the next day or the next couple of weeks hold, or when might my cancer appear back".

A week later, Ger was told that the cancer hadn't spread.

There was a time where women may have been squeamish about getting the screening done due to it being uncomfortable, Feinberg said.

To date, the Forestville Lady Hornets have donated $26,500 to Circle of Love, the RO Foundation, and many other area families affected by cancer and in need of financial help.
