About Inland Women Fighting Cancer (IWFC) and the creation of the Believe Walk

Local community leaders and cancer survivors Annie Sellas, Cathy Stockton, and the late Nancy Varner envisioned doing something in the community to raise awareness about cancer.  During treatments, they had been each other’s support group and decided to do something for local Inland women facing the same prognosis. Inland Women Fighting Cancer, a coalition of friends, fellow survivors and supporters was formed.
