Annual Cancer Run Draws Huge Response in US

Thousands of runners, walkers and their friends filled the area in and around the football stadium in Seattle on Saturday as part of the 14th annual Komen Puget Sound Race for the Cure . About 1,200 of the 16,000 participants were survivors of breast cancer, while many others were running to honor family members who had died from the disease.

Survivor were in the pink T-shirts and sporting the medallions awarded by the event organizers. In fact, pink was everywhere _ in bundles of helium-filled balloons, on foam pink rabbit ears many people sported, even in some of the food. Vendors handed out free pink baggies of Sun Chips.

After the run, Eileen McDonnell, 44, said she was first diagnosed with breast cancer seven years ago, when her oldest child, Keira, was 8 months old. She had a mastectomy and was considered cured until two years ago, when the cancer returned to her chest wall. It was discovered just hours after she'd given birth to her third and youngest child, Braedon. "It's great there's all this excitement," McDonnell said of the pageantry surrounding the run.

"But I ran for the people who are struggling and trying to live with the disease, and who are going to have a shorter life." McDonnell said the return of the disease has made her rethink the way she lives each day. At first, she fretted over her family's future and began buying Christmas presents for her children to open in years to come.

But about a year ago, she realized she was getting too serious and depressed when her middle daughter Kendall, 5, told her she missed her mom of old that night, McDonnell said she dragged the dining table into the living room and cooked up a stir-fry feast. After dinner, she and her children climbed on top of the table and danced. Since then, she said, she's tried to live each day with a much greater sense of levity. And so far, there have been no signs the cancer has spread beyond her chest.
