Event organizers tell us that rain or shine, the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk will take place this Sunday at Rec Park in Binghamton.

The walk is a part of an effort to halt breast cancer which strikes hundreds of thousands of women every year. This issue hit home for Fox 40's Frank McCaffrey, his mother was struck a few years back by the disease but was saved by early detection.

Anne McCaffrey, breast cancer survivor says, "Four years ago, back in 2011, I was diagnosed with breast cancer after I had a mammography and I was very lucky. Probably the biggest thing I'd like to leave with people who are listening to this is to have regular mammographies."
