As we enter October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it's more important than ever to make sure the message is clear: You are not alone. Every day, walking among us, are women who just received their diagnosis, who just underwent their first biopsy or their first radiation treatment, who just met with a doctor they will see for many years as they fight for their lives, who just scheduled their first surgery or their reconstruction. There is a saying, "A woman is like a tea never know how strong she is until she's in hot water." That's why we are so proud to present this archive of In Her Words guest blogs. These women have gone through tremendous challenges to overcome cancer or stand up for those who are breast cancer survivors or current patients. We hope these stories give you comfort, inspire you, and show you that you are not alone. Feel free to share these with the loved ones in your life, too, and don't hesitate to contact our Center if you are seeking breast reconstruction information or options.
