Celebrating Breast Cancer Survivors

On this first day of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and every day, I celebrate survivors.  For me, you become a survivor the moment that you are diagnosed with cancer; the moment that you become aware that cancer is in your body and make the decision to battle, to survive.  Not when you begin or finish treatment, not after surgery, but the moment that you are diagnosed.  That’s my definition.  Surviving is hard, no doubt, but truly a blessing. I draw strength and encouragement from my survivor sisterhood.

Your strength is unmatched. Your grace is remarkable. Your courage is unquestionable. Your faith is unshakable.

The soul of a survivor is that of the phoenix rising from the ashes. The incomparable and unconquerable spirit that is imbued with fortitude.

Beautiful and radiant.   You have spread your winds and soared to heights that most never reach. You are standing on a peak that belongs to you and you alone.  Dance, sing and praise yourself! You are a breast cancer survivor!

  1. I’m a 4 years breast cancer survivor and I’m going to try to do as much as I can to continue to fight cancer. I wants to live longer so I can be here with my sons, grandson and the rest of my family. I’ve had stage2 and I found out that I had breast cancer on my birthday in July 2012. So I’m definitely going to keep fighting….

    • Sophia, thank you for your comments. Congratulations on 4 years of survival! I pray that you continue to do all that you can to continue your fight. Hopefully you will keep us updated. We appreciate you reading. Thanks for being a part of our community. Happy New Year
