Exemestane, 107868-30-4 Reports: All Smiles At Point Pleasant Breast Cancer Walk, Largest In The State

Exemestane, CAS 107868-30-4 reports: All smiles at Point Pleasant breast cancer walk, largest in the state

Breast cancer survivor Amanda Barrett admits she was afraid to attend her first Making Strikes Against Breast Cancer 5K walk in Point Pleasant.


Still going through treatment, Barrett, a then 30-year-old Manahawkin resident, was bald and didn't know what to expect. She thought the event would be very solemn and sad. Instead, Barrett found quite the opposite was true. 


"I did what I had to do and I was still going through treatment when I came here, and I was so empowered, just seeing close to 1,000 survivors," said Barrett. "... As you can see, it's very energetic and celebratory and very uplifting."


That was in 2007, the first year the walk hit the $1 million mark in money raised. Barrett, a mother of two who is now 38, is a community manager for ACS' Relay for Life and was assisting others at the walk.


From high school cheerleaders to dogs draped in pink, 20,000 people braved the crisp air flowing off the ocean at the Point Pleasant boardwalk Sunday morning for the annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk. Organizers said the walk is the largest in the state.


"It feels good to give back," Barrett said, her blond hair flowing as she stood beneath the survivors tent. "American Cancer Society was definitely there for me as a participant, so now I'm able to be part of giving back to people who are fighting and celebrating."

The walk raked in $1.23 million, slightly more than the $1.1 million raised in 2014. Those figures show a vast improvement from when the walk used to take in just $200,000 in 2000, said Frank P. Mascia, vice president of the New Jersey division.


"It's a celebration of survivorship in so many ways," he said. "We're also cognoscente of the fact that remembering those that we lost. This is the embodiment of the work we do at the American Cancer Society."


Mascia said events like the 5K walk help build awareness, raise money for resources to put towards the fight against cancer, to better serve those going through "the fight," and to support biomedical research in New Jersey and across the country.


"In a way, this walk represents another year of progress, another year of survivorship for those who are with us today," Mascia said.


According to statistics provided by the ACS, more than 230,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. What's more, 40,290 will die from the disease this year, the data show.


In New Jersey, an estimated 7,310 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, with around 1,300 who will die as a result of the disease.


Since 1993, more than 11 million supporters have raised more than $685 million.


Point Pleasant's walk was one of six held in New Jersey on Sunday. Other walks happened in Parsippany, Ridgefield Park, Newark, Jersey City and Ocean City. Next week, there are two scheduled, in Edison and Pennsauken.


Dakota Boylan, 24, of Woodbridge, was at the walk on Sunday to support a friend who lost an aunt to breast cancer. Boylan herself is a cancer survivor — she had a brain tumor when she was 16 years old.


"I'm here to support all the survivors and all the people who passed away," Boylan said.


She, too, had an aunt who died from breast cancer and also lost a close friend to brain cancer.


"I'm lucky enough to be cancer free, to enjoy my life, take the risks that my friends and family can't take because they passed away," Boylan said.


In all, nearly 1,000 survivors were at the Point Pleasant walk on Sunday. Mascia said the large crowd gathered at the event represents the great strides in breast cancer research and treatment.


"To have that final day when you can say, not only for breast cancer but for all cancer, that we've put it behind us," Mascia said. "We've come so far but we're certainly not waiving the full victory flag just yet."
