“It’s been 644 days since I was told I had stage 3 breast cancer. Today I have what I believe to be my last surgery. I’ll be treated with an oral medication and injection for another 10 years, but this step is huge.” - @lifewithlucaandg Share your cancer journey with us and our community by using #Att#AttackingCancer. #AttackingCancer #CancerSurvivor #BreastCancer #BreastCancerSurvivor

“I did it. I actually did it. My 6th and final round of #chemo, done! 🎉 - These past 6 months have been the hardest of my life, but I’ve endured it all - and I’m so proud of myself for that. Even though my cancer treatment isn’t over, the chemotherapy (which is in my opinion the hardest part) is finished, so it's all gonna be uphill from here. - The sound of a bell has never sounded sweeter!! 🔔” - @samantha.roza #AttackingCancer #Can#CancerSurvivor #Cancer

“#5 is complete and coming at you with the good news that chemotherapy is working! Ryan just repeated his PET scan and the tumor has decreased in activity significantly and by about 10-15% in size! Validation that this difficult process is worth it. …Two months down, six to go.” - @mirandalynbott ​ . . .

”We are celebrating 18 months of my husband being #cancerfree. 💚💚💚 The last 2 years have been a whirlwind. I still remember the warm Friday evening he got the call from his doctor telling him the biopsy results were back. He had Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. It had been confirmed by 3 pathologists. He had his last chemotherapy infusion the day after we brought our 2nd son home from the hospital, then it was on to radiation. Today I grabbed his hand on our drive home from the check-up and he said, 'Well babe, you got me around for a few more years.'" - @gretchen_Larsen​ #AttackingCancer #CancerSurvivor

“Another milestone in my battle is complete. Today, I received my last infusion EVER! Thank you to all my family, friends, Breasties and supporters, without whom I would never have been able to make it this far. And to those of you reading this who are still fighting, know that you are stronger than you think. You can move mountains. I’m here for you and your fight is my fight. 💪🏼💕” [email protected] . . . Congratulations, Alex! We are so happy for you. #AttackingCancer #BreastCancer #Can#CancerSurvivor #Cancer
