OKLAHOMA CITY - Over a thousand people showed up at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum to celebrate beating Cancer.

"It's important to let go of the things you cant control," said Keynote speaker, and survivor Suzie Humphreys.

"I just don't think about it, I go to the doctor, I get that, then I walk out and go get my nails done and just live life," said Humphreys.

Two time Breast Cancer survivor Nadine Bye says battling cancer is terrible.

"It gives everybody hope doesn't it? It's like a therapy session ... You can talk about your cancer and they can talk about theirs and that in itself is healing," Bye said.

This was a celebration but also a memorial for all of those who lost their battle.

"I lost my husband to Cancer and so it means a lot to me. We struggled and struggled and he didn't make it," Bye said.

But she made it.

"I've been through it and I know what it is, and it's just, I don`t know, you want to take a deep breath and start all over again. I pray for each one of them," said Bye.
