CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — Tens of thousands of women and men battle breast cancer each year, and while survival rates are always improving, some don’t make it.

A local team is honoring those who stood brave in the face of immense odds at a gala happening this weekend.

An Evening of Hope II: The Power to Fight will be held on Saturday, April 14th at Moncks Corner Baptist Life Center. (496 E. Main Hall, Moncks Corner)

All proceeds will benefit the survivor of the night, Ms. Gemena Murchinson. There will also be a presentation in memory of Dennis Smalls who won his battle on February 14th.

The event will also be in honor of Sherriol Williams, who lost her battle with breast cancer and passed away in December 2001.
