Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.COM) --- Pink was the theme of a fundraiser held Sunday to help one Duluth women battle cancer.

Lynn Walker, was diagnosed with breast cancer in May.

Her friends surprised her by throwing the 'Save Walker's Knocker's' benefit to help raise money for ongoing treatments.

Walker has a ten-year-old daughter and since her diagnosis, has started a new job.

Walker found out about her cancer from a routine mammogram check-up, she urges all women to get screened even if they have no signs or symptoms of the disease.

"Stay healthy and what you do matters to people and obviously, look at this, I'm very, very lucky,” Walker said.

Walker says she takes her cancer and treatments day-by-day and wouldn't have such high spirits without the support of family and friends.

The National Cancer Institute recommends that women age 40 or older have screening mammograms every 1 to 2 years.
