A family of cancer survivors team up to fight the deadly disease.

Cheryl Mavrkal and two of her sisters have beaten breast cancer, while her third sister is currently fighting lung cancer.

The family and their friends make up team Country Neighbors and today they held a bake sale to raise money for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.

This is the 10th year they've taken part in the fundraiser.

Mavrkal says for her this is a very personal cause.

They hope to beat last year's fundraising total of $800 dollars.

Mavrkal says the best seller is her dad's famous pumpkin pie.
