Thank you, walkers, for your commitment and dedication! I did this event in 2004 and I have never experienced anything more physically demanding (and I have a child- ha!). My hat is off to you guys- thank you for caring enough to commit to such a challenge. You guys are an inspiration. Go walkers!

I think it is wonderful that people do this and have this dedication but I think it is very sad that it is the only cancer that gets the attention that it gets while there are others that take more lives and have much less available treatments and are considered forgotten cancers. None should ever be forgotten

Deb,

As with most fundraising or research efforts, they begin at the grass roots level. Rather than insinuting that women (and men by the way)with breast cancer (last I checked probably one of the highest mortality rates of any cancer)don't deserve all the efforts they are getting (God forbid you ever find yourself or a loved one one of them), why don't you go out and start raising awareness and money for the cancer or cancers you are concerned about? Be a leader and a motiviational force and please quit whining and disrespecting all of the wonderful people that work so hard, and the survisors and non-survivors alike.

Well done ladies! I walked last year and know how hard you worked to fundraise as well as complete the walk! Maybe I'll see some of you next year when I'm a crew member :)

Well done women and men! I would also like to thank everyone's support along the route. We could not have done this without you. I have never experienced anything this amazing and it keeps getting better each year. I have committed to walk another 120 miles in 09'. Each walker must raise $2300 to walk.

One reason for cancer; the glands under our arms are toxic with the chemicals from the deodorants. I'm shocked this isn't talked about more, it's one major reason, that area is prone to develop illnesses.

Try natural products.

All natural products are more in tune with the body than all the medicine in the world, the pharmaceutical companies have everyone brainwashed too. Please people..READ...educate yourselves, find healthy alternatives and you'll live longer.

Do you have any scientific data to back up this claim? I have heard about this POSSIBLE correlation in the past, but also always heard it dismissed by the experts. How does the rate of BC in the US compare maybe to somewhere like France? In France it is pretty common for them not to shave their arm pits, or where deodorant. Under these circumstances, if your theory was correct, I would think the results to rather signifigant.

I am breast cancer survivor and walked it last year. It was a rewarding experience. I volunteered at the closing ceremonies this year and wished that I had walked instead. I hope to be back next year!!!

That is awesome, congratulations! I have a sister in New York who is also a survivor (bi-lateral)and she continues to do well 5 years later. I wish the same for you and all survivors!
