It's about taking the fight against breast cancer out of the ring.

A Hilliard cancer survivor just got the chance to be a part of the WWE's new "More than Pink" public service announcement and to appear on 'Monday Night Raw.'

Kelly Sherman couldn't believe she won the contest. She just finished taping the PSA last month and then Tuesday night came home from Los Angeles after a debut on the company's flagship show.

"Just seeing these wrestlers in real life and seeing how much they care, it's unbelievable," said Sherman.

She was diagnosed back in May of 2014 with Stage 3B breast cancer. She said she had a real tough time with her battle.

"I struggled a lot," she said. "I have every bad thing go wrong. It was infection after infection. I want to say I had a huge surgery on December 3 and then I had seven additional surgeries from December to March."

But Sherman's fight and courage is what the WWE is honoring. Now as a survivor, Sherman is giving back. She volunteers at hospitals and at Komen Columbus.

"I want to help people with cancer understand it okay. That's my big thing. You might have cancer, but you're not necessarily going to die," she said.

WWE is running the PSA as a partner with Susan G. Komen during October, which is 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month.'
