Over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors/fighters are alive in the United States today and that number continues to rise. We use the term survivorship because it is a growing area of study and interest for the very positive reason that more women are living longer than ever before and have unique issues and needs based on the life span following a cancer diagnosis.
To Life! is sensitive to the fact that not all women identify with the term Survivor and that each person has a right to define themselves, whether you resonate with the term Survivor, Thriver, Fighter, Warrior, or a term of your choosing. For women with metastatic cancer, To Life! acknowledges this may always include treatment and daily challenges not experienced by non-metastatic survivors.
To Life! is committed to our survivor/fighter community. Please reach out to us to learn more about our programs, services, support, and events.
