February 11, 2016

Every February, thousands of runners gather in Jacksonville, Florida, to take part in the 26.2 with Donna. It's a marathon created by breast cancer survivor Donna Deegan "to raise funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research and women living with breast cancer." Money raised has helped support genetic research geared toward developing treatments for breast and other cancers based on an individual's genetic information.

Donna Deegan says the marathon is not only an event to raise money and awareness, but it's also a time to celebrate all people touched by cancer. Vivien Williams has more.
