Those diagnosed with breast cancer often look back at their lives and wonder if there was anything they could have done to prevent it. In most cases it’s not possible to know whether events and actions in your past could have contributed to your risk of developing the disease.
But often, a diagnosis of breast cancer means reflecting on the past and considering the future and an opportunity to live a healthier lifestyle. The amazing women below all have something in common: having had breast cancer they are passionate about reducing their future risk to help prevent a recurrence, and about sharing our prevention message.
