Whitesboro, N.Y. - About 300 People filled Hart’s Hill Inn in Whitesboro on Sunday, many of them cancer survivors, the rest were their loved ones there to support them.

Mohawk Valley Health System’s Cancer Center held its 32nd annual Cancers Survivors Breakfast.

Mohawk Valley Health System Cancer Center Executive Director Nancy Betcher says the number of people that attend this event is going up each year.

Betcher says it’s good to see people surviving cancer longer and longer.

Betcher says she has some advice for people out there. "If you are feeling something out of the ordinary that just doesn’t feel right, get to your doctor and get checked out."

And for those who don’t want to go because of the cost, Betcher says it’s well worth your co-pay, “The cost of cancer is really so much more than that co-pay, and I understand the financial burden that cancer provides but really that co-pay doesn’t come close to the magnitude of what that cancer can cost."
