I’m Still Beautiful And A Survivor: Breast Cancer Survivor Shares Her Picture On Social Media

A lady shared a very personal picture of herself showing the world that she is a breast cancer survivor and people were really surprised at her bold move of sharing her picture online.

You may wonder who is considered as a breast cancer survivor, here’s a little bit of clarity, Many think of it as a badge they can only wear after they are cancer-free for a number of years. Others, including those at the National Cancer Institute, say you are considered a survivor on the day that you are diagnosed and remain one throughout the rest of your life.

Studies have shown that breast cancer patients, after completion of therapy, seek to move on and return to a “normal way of life.” Studies show that a desire for “normality” is a key factor in coping with breast cancer.

In a complete remission, all signs and symptoms of cancer have disappeared. If you remain in complete remission for 5 years or more, some doctors may say that you are cured. Still, some cancer cells can remain in your body for many years after treatment. These cells may cause the cancer to come back one day.
