Latifa Cherif, founder and president of the association "Les Amis du Ruban Rose" is also an entrepreneur, mother, social activist, and breast cancer survivor. She is joined by Samia Akariou, actress, director, and active member of the association. The pair talk about the importance of a stable support system and how important it is for patients during their treatment and recovery. Today, both Latifa and Samia are campaigning to make women understand that psychological support is very important during treatment. It is partly responsible for 70% of the healing. You must break the taboo and have the courage to say: "Yes, I have breast cancer! So what?".
