Breast Cancer Survivors Share Their Stories

Every cancer patient has a story to tell.

These breast cancer patients and survivors  share their varied experiences of going through breast cancer treatment and cancer diagnosis. Whether it’s hope and inspiration, practical information or tips,  each of these stories are as unique as the survivors in the videos.

Please take a moment to look over these profiles in courage. While October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month,  breast cancer education is a year-round job. Every year, one in eight women may be affected by breast cancer during their lives,  but breast cancer also affects the lives of  their families, friends and co-workers.  We hope these videos help inspire,  as well as get the word out on breast cancer awareness and the importance of early detection.
