Survivor Stories & Information

Fight Like a Girl’s collection of Power Stories are written and shared by real women who have overcome cancer or who are still battling their health adversary every day. The cancer stories found here are a source of empowerment and education, teaching women key signs and symptoms of the many different forms of cancer as well as how to take care of oneself throughout the treatment process. Survivor stories are equally powerful, written by women who now advocate for others still in the fight against a form of cancer or other detrimental illness.
