This is emotional and powerful.

Pam McKelvy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2012, is a news anchor for WMC in Memphis.  Earlier this week, she removed her wig and showed her audience her real hair.

It was an empowering moment for McKelvy, who underwent a double mastectomy as treatment.

"I want everybody to know that no matter what you go through, it’s not about what’s on the outside, it’s about what’s on the inside," she said." And I feel that on the inside I am more radiant and beautiful than I’ve ever been."

While it's still early in 2014, it's not too early to make plans for some of the tristate's key events to raise awareness for breast cancer and raise funds for breast cancer research.

The tri-state has mutliple breast cancer awareness events.  The largest, of course, is the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure.  It is Sunday, September 28th at Eastland Mall in Evansville.  Registrations for the event will open on June 2nd and attendance is expected to soar into the thousands.  For more information about Race for the Cure, CLICK HERE!

The American Cancer Society's breast cancer awareness event is Making Strides.  And it will take place October 19th in downtown Owensboro.  For more information and to register your Making Strides team, CLICK HERE!

And stay tuned!  The American Cancer Society is thrilled to announce the first-ever Making Strides event in Evansville.  The date is currently set for October 15th and more details will be announced soon!
