We have learned that there are so many strong women who have been through, or who are going through, breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. They have amazing perspectives and amazing stories. They inspire us every day. Their journeys and stories are powerful and inspirational. They are impactful and need to be heard. Join us as we feel the full range of emotions with these patients, as they share the raw and real feelings that come with their personal breast cancer journeys. These young women's stories and journeys will be emotional at times, but they will also be informative. They share stories of hope and triumph, but also how they navigated their way through the tough and uncertain times. Their experiences can offer hope and relatability to others who may be listening and going through, or have gone through, a similar journey. Every story will be unique, every story is worth hearing. They not only survive after breast cancer, but they thrive in living their best life.
