About 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed among American women in 2013. For those women, true strength wasn’t discovered until they had no choice but to be strong. That’s what makes the human spirit so amazing.
Breastcancer.org, the non-profit organization dedicated to providing reliable and up-to-date information on breast cancer, reports that about 1 in 8 women (or 12 percent of the female U.S. population) will develop invasive breast cancer during the course of her lifetime. While this fact is startling, the positive side does exist. If a breast cancer diagnosis occurs, strength is not far behind. Strength can fuel the fire of recovery.
As we celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness month this month, let’s come together to inspire strength within each other. Woman or man, thirty-year-old or fifty-year-old, we are all strong.
