Linda Davis is a survivor.It seemed like a normal routine mammogram over 15 years ago but it was one that would change her life forever.
"They spotted something on my mammogram and I went back for a diagnostic mammogram and then they told me it was cancer," said Davis.
It doesn't run in her family.Her daughter, Lori,remembers when they found out. "So, it was a shock to my brother and I both.But it was detected so early. I mean we were so lucky."
Tonight, Linda and Lori, among hundreds of others are laughing.....for a cure.
Executive Director Tami Simmons explains."Laughter is the best medicine.Of course, we know breast cancer is certainly no laughing matter, but it does help people to release the tension and to take a few minutes out to just relax and laugh and it does help."
Over 1,000 people attended 'Laugh for a Cure', which has food, a silent auction which includes sports tickets and autographs, plus a comedy show. The money raised will benefit Komen Charlotte, a non-profit that targets breast cancer.
