We've been featuring our Buddy Check series since 2001. Ten years ago, we introduced
you to a special woman named Mary Rucco , this breast cancer survivor credits
"Buddy Check" for saving her life. We caught up with her all these
years later and it turns out, she is living that life of hers to the fullest.

Mary allowed Eyewitness News to be with her as she headed into surgery back in 2003. We followed her treatment.  Now, 10 years later, Mary is cancer free and living life to the fullest.

Remember this is your reminder to call your buddy-- it could save a life!
