All the attendees of Sunday's Relay for Life survivor's reception in New Hanover County, North Carolina, drew on some inspiration to persevere against cancer and fight the disease.
But perhaps no story was as inspiring as that of 33-year-old Chisel Segura who, despite battling breast cancer for a second time, will walk in the event this April, NBC affiliate WECT reports.
When Segura was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time in 2009, she was already several months pregnant.
Thankfully, Segura was able to deliver a healthy baby girl, Cami, after undergoing chemotherapy and a full mastectomy.
Though doctors found another lump in Segura's breast two weeks ago, the warrior against breast cancer now looks to her ten-year-old and baby girl for inspiration.
"They are the reason for me to have a big smile on my face when I wake up," Segura told the news source.
On April 23rd, Segura will walk in Relay for Life's Annual Walk for the Cure at Ashley High School as an expression of her determination to continue battling breast cancer for her children and other survivors.
"There's nothing go to stop me fighting," she says.
In the U.S. breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women according to the National Institutes of Health.
