Linda Daniels, 18-year survivor

Linda’s first Race for the Cure after her diagnosis in 1998 was in Baltimore, Maryland.  She cried the entire 5K through the rain and cold, but she felt that she had to do it and be with other people who understood.  Fast-forward nearly two decades, and she now proudly oversees the Race for the Cure’s Mission Tent, hosting multiple organizations offering life-saving information.  Linda offers those she meets the same assurance she found at her first Race.  “A lot of survivors within that five-year period get encouragement from seeing someone 18 years out.  They need hope.”

Linda’s commitment as a volunteer isn’t just once a year at the Race.  Over the last seven years, she has volunteered countless hours at the affiliate’s office.  In recognition of her More Than Pink efforts, she has earned the “Extra Mile Award” not once, but twice. “When you are fortunate enough to be able to give back, you have to do it with an organization you believe in.”
