As walkers rounded the track at Lufkin middle school, survivors, family members and many others cheered on those walking hoping to find a cure for cancer. 8 year old Cody Perry is walking for his own mother who is battling cancer right now. "I'm happy. She's special and I love her. This lady's special to me, very, very special," he said.
His mother was diagnosed with colon cancer in September and it's those sentiments that are pushing her to keep moving forward. "It means a lot to see all the people cheering you on and then your thinking if they can stand here and cheer us on we can do it," Lisa Perry explained.
