AMORY – Local breast cancer survivors and fighters were honored during Oct. 12’ volleyball game between Amory and Byhalia.

Those honored during the pink game were Lana McGonagill, a two-year and three months survivor; Annie Crudup, a one-year survivor; Earlene Childs, a seven-year survivor; Kim Warren, a six-year survivor; Carrie Gore, an Amory School District teacher who was diagnosed with invasive ductile carcinoma in February 2020 and continues to fight; Vanessa Shannon, a three-year survivor; Lesley Prude, a two-year survivor; Shamaine Pannell, an eight-month survivor; Sonya Wallace, a one-year and six month survivor; and Holly Reeves, a nine-year survivor.

“After a routine mammogram in 2010, I learned that I had Stage 1 breast cancer. After wonderful care from my physicians, I was considered cancer-free for nine years,” Goldman said. “In 2019, I discovered I had stage four breast cancer. It has been amazing to see the changes in treatment that have developed during those nine years. I am now in my third clinical trial designed to fight metastatic breast cancer. I feel blessed that God has led me to those who are continuing to fight this disease.”
