Families take steps against cancer during annual event


Yokuts Park set the stage for a community to come together when times are rough.

The third annual Kern County Cancer Run/Walk happened Saturday.

The event was created to bring funding and awareness to various cancer diagnosis.

Nichole Hernandez was at the walk with her family. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2017, and she is now in remission and attributed her strong fight to family and faith.

"No matter how you get knocked down, you have to keep moving and keep fighting," said Hernandez.

The event is organized by the Comprehensive Blood & Cancer Center.
