By Karin McCay| email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –She's the band director at Abernathy High, and she teaches music to the little ones as well. Anna Jo Knight discovered she had breast cancer 2 years ago, and she began to teach a much different lesson for the whole community.

After a mastectomy and chemotherapy, she is cancer free today, but still spreading the word that cancer is not a death sentence.  Anna Jo says she hopes you'll join her in the upcoming race for the cure on October 2nd.

In the meantime, for the next two Sunday nights, we'll bring you more positive stories from area women who are breast cancer survivors.
