Local community leaders and cancer survivors, Annie Sellas, Cathy Stockton and Nancy Varner know one thing for sure…friends don’t let friends go through cancer alone. Their journey experienced the unbreakable bonds of love, joy, blessings, hope and strength. Thankful for the love and support of family, friends, and a wonderful community during their own cancer treatments, they were compelled to find a way to give that same message of hope and care to others.

In 2007 after countless meetings and prayers, Annie, Cathy and Nancy with a group of friends, fellow survivors and supporters formed Inland Women Fighting Cancer with the goal of creating the first Believe Walk to benefit cancer patients in the local community. To do this, Inland Women Fighting Cancer teamed up with Stater Bros. Charities to launch the inaugural Believe Walk on October 4, 2008 in downtown Redlands.

Since its inception, the Believe Walk has brought awareness and support to the local area by donating with over $1 million to establish a Patient Resource Center at Loma Linda University Cancer Center and a funding partner of the Women’s Imaging and Wellness Center St. Bernardine’s Medical Center while donating to numerous other cancer fighting agencies.

The purple ribbon is a simple reminder that we walk for all cancer patients and survivors.
