"I just wish it wasn't the word cancer"
"It's the best sorority with the worst initiation"
"It takes great strength to lean on other people and to allow other people to be strong for you."
"I'll never forget that day... I was diagnosed with Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma."
"I look back and I think that it just seemed like it would take a really long time and it's really just a small part of so much more life that we have."
Being a Mother With Breast Cancer
"When you care about somebody, you're not going to let them do it alone."
"I've come face-to-face with my mortality and I realize that life is short. I've got to live it to the fullest. That's the gift. That insight. That's the gift."

We at Pink Ribbon Story Foundation believe that women with breast cancer and their families have the most important perspectives on the disease and are the best teachers. With truth spoken from the heart, theirs are stories that must be told.

Our mission is to empower women with breast cancer to share their stories, helping themselves and others learn from their unique experiences, and to be better advocates for their treatment and recovery.

There is no medicine more powerful than sharing your story
