"She left five wishes and one of her wishes was to try to bring awareness to Ovarian Cancer, that it's silent, it can affect anyone at any age," says Michaela Linn Hale, daughter of Vicki Linn.
Now the family started the Annual Vicki Linn Walk.
"It defines who my mother was and still is. She was an educator, she always wanted to try to make a difference. She would be very, very humbled by all of this to know that there's this much support and people cared that much about her," says Michaela.
Last year they raised almost $45,000 and donated all of it equally between the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and the Western Maryland Health System.
Shannon Miller took the Olympic Gold Medal for the U.S. Gymnastic team in 1996. She says she doesn't practice too much anymore
"Every now and then my three year-old gets me out there and he wants to see me do a forward roll, which he thinks is hilarious, but that's about it for me," says Shannon.
Now she speaks about overcoming Ovarian Cancer.
"It's so important that we not be fearful, that we do take charge. So I learn something at every event I go to like this. I gain strength from other survivors and learn from their experiences as well," comments Shannon.
She says speaking can bring back her fear of the cancer coming back, but it's worth it to talk to others to remember you're not alone.
"Just never give up. It's going to be tough days, there are going to be times when you just don't want to continue, and you just can't give up," says Shannon.
Shannon reminds us that sometimes you can fall and win, especially when it comes to beating cancer.
