CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Ooooo... love this story. Mae Wallace, on the far left holding the baby, is a breast cancer Survivor who lives in Mrytle Beach. She used to live in Denver, in Lincoln County.

This year is her 20th year of Survivorship. She read about our Pink Cupcake Walk here on Facebook, and is coming to Charlotte from Mrytle to walk on October 1st. She, and other family members, are already signed up.

Her new great-niece she’s holding? Her name is Madison Mae. She was born August 16th and she, too, will be walking (rolling?) in her stroller around the Charlotte Knights baseball field with us.

”I am so excited to be walking in this year’s Pink Cupcake Walk,” Mae wrote after our first team note went out last week. “On July 15th, I became a 20-year Survivor! I moved to North Myrtle Beach four years ago and will be coming up to join the walk, with my granddaughter, daughter-in-law, and niece. We can’t wait!”

How awesome is that? Photos of her family, and a picture of Mae taken a few years ago at Lake Norman, are posted below.
