MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Susan G. Komen More Than Pink walk returned to downtown Miami on Saturday.

The walk raises money for breast cancer research and the day was even more meaningful to those who are battling or survived breast cancer.

It was a sea of pink on Biscayne Boulevard as thousands came together in hopes of finding a cure.

The annual walk was back to being in person after going virtual last year.

“The emotion behind actually being back at a live event. I’ve participated for years,” said Teresa Murphy.

She had been doing the walk even before she knew anyone with breast cancer. Then she was diagnosed.

“Last year as a teacher of fourth grade, I taught virtually the entire year during my treatments,” said Murphy.

During that time, she was named Miami-Dade County Teacher of the Year. Just last month, she completed her last chemo treatment, officially going from a breast cancer warrior to survivor.

“Don’t give up the fight. The more positivity and mindfulness that you take part in throughout the process, it’s gonna bring you peace and comfort. And it’s going to help you heal,” said Murphy.

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is also a survivor and wanted to remind people even in the pandemic, to remember life-saving screenings.

“If we’ve had a huge drop in the number of women who are getting mammograms, they’re avoiding and putting off screenings. It is so important because if you don’t get screened, then if you are, God forbid, diagnosed with breast cancer, it’s likely going to be a later stage, catching breast cancer early if you’re going to go through it is so important,” she said.

It was not only survivors that came out but also their supporters along with those who are working to provide care and one day a cure.

“We are very proud of what we do. We are very passionate and we know how important they are,” said Dr. Merce Jorda, University of Miami’s Department of Pathology Chair.

Organizers said roughly 4000 people took part this year. There was also a virtual option so everyone who wanted to participate could do so.

Nick Cannon’s 5-month-old son Zen dead from brain cancer

More On: nick cannon Fans lose their minds over Nick Cannon’s apparent bulge on TV show Nick Cannon, dad of 7, volunteers to make ‘some babies’ with Saweetie Nick Cannon parties at strip club on Halloween Nick Cannon says ex Kim Kardashian ‘broke my heart’

Nick Cannon’s son Zen has died of brain cancer. He was 5 months old.

“The Masked Singer” host announced the devastating news on his eponymous talk show Tuesday morning, breaking down in tears as he detailed his son’s private health battle with Hydrocephalus, a form of brain cancer.

“I always noticed he had a cough and so I wanted to check it out,” Cannon, 41, explained (via Entertainment Tonight). “He had this interesting breathing and by the time he was two months I noticed he had this nice sized head too — a Cannon head.

“We didn’t think anything of it, but I wanted to take him to the doctor for his sinus and breathing. We thought it would be routine.” 

Cannon and Alyssa Scott welcomed Zen in July. The family learned Zen – who was Cannon’s 7th child – had been building up fluid in his brain that turned out to be a malignant tumor.

Baby Zen then underwent surgery to have a shunt put in and drain the fluid. Unfortunately, the tot’s health took a turn near Thanksgiving, so Cannon flew out to Los Angeles to be with Zen and Alyssa.

“This weekend I made an effort to spend the most quality time with Zen. We woke up on Sunday and went to the ocean with him and Alyssa, and then I had to fly back to New York for the show,” he shared, breaking down in tears. “I got a call on my way to the airport to head back to Zen.”

Cannon then tearfully shared that he held his son for the last time this weekend. 

“You can’t heal until you feel,” he told the audience, adding that he’s at work so soon after because it serves as a distraction.

He called the episode a “celebration of life” for Zen. 

After Cannon shared the news with his viewers, Alyssa shared a photo of Zen in her arms lying with his eyes closed on her Instagram Story.
