    Survivors of Breast Cancer

    Breast cancer survivors are a passionate
    group who have fought the battle and won.

    From the the first diagnosis -- to the eventual news that you are truly cancer-free -- going through breast cancer "Survivor" is a lot more "real" than the popular reality show.

    First comes the shock of facing a life-threatening disease. Then come the biopsies, surgeries, and post-op recovery, or the ups and downs of chemotherapy along with the stress of spending time away from family, career, or usual routines.

    And let's not even mention the inevitable hospital bills and financial strain.

    Little wonder, then, why almost all breast cancer patients in a particularly dark moment suddenly think: "This was not in the script!"

    Survivorship stories are signposts along the road to recovery that provide inspiration for the newly-diagnosed or for those currently under treatment.

    They impart the message: "Yes, you can do this."
