Breast Cancer Survivors Ready for Race for the Cure

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -
Becky Berger was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2013. Like everyone this happens to, it turned her life upside down.

"Well at first I was in denial," said Berger. "And you think 'Well someone made a mistake. They have the wrong chart.' And then it's a whirlwind of tests at the hospital."

A whirlwind that left her with more questions than answer.

"Having a diagnosis of breast cancer in June was not the way I intended to start my retirement," said Berger. "In addition to that my first grandson was due to be born in Denver in July."

Becky would live to see her grandson born. And now after 4 surgeries is cancer free. And her family has continued to grow thanks to new group of friends at Susan G. Komen.

"With that kind of bonding you know that that person truly knows what you're going through and what you're feeling." said Berger. "So that's what really brings us together. Then as you start joining in more activities you meet more and more people that bond to you because they truly know what you're going through."

This will be Becky's first Race for the Cure, and she's been very active in all the pre-race festivities. Festivities she urged me to attend.
One of the new events leading up to Race for the Cure on Saturday is the pink color station. Now as you can see the ladies and gentlemen around me have already gone through the color station. I have not. I have been hoodwinked into this somehow so I guess let's go ahead and do it.

Events like this raise awareness for Becky and her new found family. Individually they beat the odds. But together they can save lives.

All of their mechanics are ASE Certified and because UGM Motors doesn't purchase their vehicles, they are able to put a lot more money into rebuilding their used cars than the typical used car lot.
