Getting to the finish line is half the battle because those who cross over that line have gone through so much to get there. This is fourth annual Breast Cancer walk for the American Cancer Society.

One survivor says our politicians need to join in the fight.
An estimated 9,000 Illinois women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Breast cancer survivors urge other women to get a yearly mammogram.
