CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Tonight, part four of our week-long series on SURVIVORS. Cheryl Eubanks is part of a family where breast cancer has hit three generations.
She says talking about it - keeping it real and honest and sharing her own testimony - is the best way to help others.
"It's frightening," she says. "It's frightening. You're praying the entire time."
Sixty-year-old Cheryl Eubanks is cancer-free now after being diagnosed in 2011.
"My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer," she said. "I was diagnosed with breast cancer. And my daughter is now undergoing treatment for breast cancer."
Three generations. But right now, Cheryl says they're really rallying around her daughter. Cheryl will be at Komen Charlotte's "Race for the Cure" on October 1st to celebrate herself... yes... but also honor and help fight for her girl.
"Race morning is really an upbeat thing," she says. "II think everyone should just go and enjoy. See all the survivors. See all the people there excited to be survivors but also encouraging and supprting each other!"
