We invited women nationwide whose lives were changed by breast cancer…
To share with us what they wish someone had told them when they were newly diagnosed. 18 fearless breast cancer survivors, thrivers and warriors responded, and spoke with courage and honesty about the emotional, physical, and mental challenges and lessons that were learned while battling the disease.
ON LEARNING TO FIGHT
Diagnoses of ductal carcinoma, triple negative breast cancer, Stage IV invasive ductal carcinoma, and DCIS 3 tumors moved these women to tap into an inner strength they didn’t know they had.
ON SEEKING TREATMENT
Over the course of treating breast cancer, women (and in rare cases, men) have a multitude of critical health decisions to make—from surgery and chemo to fertility preservation and breast reconstruction. Whether dealing with Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma or BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations, a high level of medical involvement is required.
ON MANAGING RELATIONSHIPS
Worry. Anxiety. Guilt. These are feelings that newly diagnosed women face along with their loved ones. The impact of breast cancer on relationships can be life-changing—for better or for worse.
ON HOPE & FAITH
Once cancer is detected, most women begin operating in crisis mode. A breast cancer diagnosis can spark feelings of uncertainty, fear, and vulnerability. For these women, their emotional and mental strength was tested, and yet they found hope.
FOR THE ROAD TO RECOVERY
The emotional and mental scars of breast cancer can linger long after going through treatment. For many women who’ve battled against breast cancer talking to others who understand all that it really takes to recover is essential.
