HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) Students at James Madison University celebrated breast cancer awareness month through the lives of those who lived it.
Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority gave breast cancer survivors a chance to speak about their own stories of survival.
Speakers touched on the importance of early detection and balancing family life while going through breast cancer treatments.
"We just really want people to know that it affects everyone in the community and it affects people in the JMU community and so I think that's what the main goal of it is. Is to just spread awareness about breast cancer," said Liana Brockway who helped to coordinate the event.
Proceeds from t-shirt sales at the event will go to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure Foundation and cancer research.
