More than 1,300 children are diagnosed with different types of cancer each year. The purpose of the CureSearch walk is to get one step closer to finding a cure for children’s cancer. This walk also helps to raise money for cancer research while bringing together people who have been impacted by cancer.
Richard Webber was diagnosed with Wilms, a form of cancer where tumors can attach to the kidneys, at the age the of three. His parents say their faith greatly helped get them through one of the most difficult times in their lives.
"We are believers in God and we know that God has carried us this far through," said Nancy Webber.
Nancy Webber and her husband say its events like these that makes the journey at little easier.
"It's neat to see everybody come together one day to honor the children that have lost their battle, the children that are still fighting their battles and the children that have survived, whether they are recent or 10-20 years off of treatment," said Nancy Webber.
