Hometown Hero: Terri Neal

Terri Neal's Christmas changed dramatically last year.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer. After she cried, she started fighting.

In January, Terri had chemotherapy and lost weight and her hair and got weak. But now, Terri's strong and helping raise money for Komen Dallas County.

Terri and her co-worker, Janna Birkner, put on a fundraising pink dance party for Komen Dallas County. The two women work at JP Morgan Stanley. Janna is a six-year breast cancer survivor and mentored Terri through her treatment.

Terri is determined to "kick breast cancer dead in the butt". She's a one-year breast cancer survivor and inspires other women.

The Komen Dallas County Race for The Cure is Saturday, October, 27 at the NorthPark Center. To register log on to www.Komen-Dallas.org/dallasrace.

FOX4 will bring you live coverage of Komen Dallas Race Day at 7 a.m.
