• Sharing
    Sharing. (v.) To relate (a story or experience) to another or others. Our promise at the Pink Ribbon Story Foundation  is to empower women with breast cancer to share their stories, helping themselves and others to learn from their experiences, and to be better advocates for their own recovery.
  • Learning
    Learning. (v.) To acquire knowledge through study, experience or being taught.

"Your sense of humor changes. It becomes breast cancer humor. We laugh about stuff."
"When you tell people you have cancer their faces drop. 'Oh, I'm so sorry.' No, don't go there. You don't have to be sorry for me."
"But the more tests they did, the more lesions they found. So although it was a difficult decision, I knew that I needed to have a double mastectomy."
"I hate that word survivor. I do not just want to survive, I want to thrive. Reconstruction is part of thriving."
"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."
"I think you're always afraid of how you're going to feel if it happens again. What if I have a recurrence?"
"If you have any reservations about anybody on your medical team, go out and find somebody else."
"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
