One in eight women in the U.S. will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Here's what a few inspiring survivors have to say about what it feels like to fight –and win.
Learning to face scary situations.
Fear takes on a new meaning.
Women have to take control of their bodies.
Even when it feels like you have nothing, you have yourself and your strength.
Realizing that change doesn't have to be negative.
You can't forget about the little indulgences that make you happy, no matter how frivolous they feel.
Encouraging others to be proactive.
Surround yourself with people who give you strength, not pity.
No matter how you slice the cake, cancer makes you stronger through a million weaker moments.
Listen to your body, as we are reminded by 10-year breast cancer survivor Christina Steinorth-Powell.
Five-year breast cancer survivor Melanie Young reminds women to find the opportunity in everything.
Dreams shouldn't die with or without cancer.
Donna W. Hill, 23-year breast cancer survivor, makes a great point. No one can predict the future.
Kerry Kenna, six-year survivor who has collaborated with the BC5 Project, speaks on making empowered medical decisions.
Lorraine Hutchinson, 2014 Susan G. Komen Honorary Breast Cancer Survivor, also sees the silver lining.
Brenda Jones, six-year survivor and designer of Hug Wraps, wants every woman to know her strength.
Lynn Jones, four-year breast cancer survivor, gives powerful words of encouragement.
Tovi Riegler's, cocreator of CureDiva, cancer recently came back and metastasized to other parts of her body. We are sending thoughts and prayers her way.
If there's any time to practice self-care, it's now.
That moment when you dig deep and find out you're capable of more than you ever imagined.
Healing always starts from within.
Even after the fight of your life, there's a silver lining.
