Brides Against Breast Cancer

By  | 

Every bride wants a perfect wedding. Sunday many brides-to-be had the chance to take a look at what you need for that perfect wedding and benefit the American Cancer Society at the same time.

Local wedding professionals all gathered in one spot to show off their bridal necessities. Brides-to-be tasted cake, looked through wedding photo albums and started planning their own perfect wedding, but Beverly York says it's more than frills and lace.

York has been cancer free for four years and wants other young women to understand how important life really can be after surviving breast cancer and helping fight cancer in return.

"Talking to somebody that's been through it really helps a lot. It's very scary just to get that diagnosis and that's what it's all about, trying to help people deal with it and become a survivor."

York also participated in a fashion show with other cancer survivors Sunday afternoon. The American Cancer Society received 100 percent of the $10 admission fee.

The Brides Against Breast Cancer Show is held every ear in October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
