Poems About Fighting Breast Cancer

Millions of women are fighting a battle with breast cancer, and hundreds of thousands more are diagnosed with it every year. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a time to spread awareness and educate people about this disease. During October, women are encouraged to get screened. People also share their stories about how they or their loved ones have been affected by breast cancer. Hearing stories from those who have walked this journey are a reminder that you are not alone. Millions of people have walked it or are currently going through this battle. May we lean on one another during times of need. And may we rally around those whose lives have been impacted by cancer.
