At this time, there are close to 2.9 million breast cancer survivors in the United States alone. There is much reason for hope. Breast cancer, when caught early, is a very curable, very treatable disease. Incredible advances have been made in the fields of surgery, oncology, radiation and pharmaceuticals.
Today, breast reconstruction, in the hands of skilled surgeons, has the ability to leave women feeling whole and more beautiful than ever before. When a woman is first diagnosed, it is hard to see beyond the hill to climb, the journey seems all encompassing, and the challenge daunting. It’s hard to imagine that there will come a day when you will be “okay” again. Our Ambassadors are here to share their stories of hope and inspire others with their experiences to remind women to focus on the future and the promise of living beyond breast cancer.
