Breast Cancer Quotes to Inspire and Educate

Claudia Schmidt is a breast cancer survivor who writes about that and more on her blog, My Left Breast. See what inspires her on this post.

The website Healthline is a great resource for anyone going through a breast cancer diagnosis. Their stated mission is “to make the people of the world healthier through the power of information” – a wonderful goal.

Healthline has just published a series of quotes from celebrity women who have also experienced breast cancer.  I’m personally inspired by many of these women so I’m happy to share them with you – they’re all very moving to me.

I think my favorite of the 14 quotes is the one from Robin Roberts below.  To me, she epitomizes strength and grace under pressure.

You can view all of the 14 inspirational quotes by clicking on this link.  They include quotes from women like Melissa Etheridge, Christina Applegate, Cynthia Nixon and Janet Napolitano who have all experienced breast cancer.

In addition to many other health topics, Healthline has a section of their site devoted to breast cancer which you can find here.  It’s broken into 6 comprehensive sections that cover topics such as:

  1. A General Understanding of Breast Cancer
  2. Types of Breast Cancer
  3. Treatment Options
  4. Procedures
  5. Community and Support
  6. Advice for Living With Breast Cancer
And let me close with this quote from Sheryl Crow which echoes what I’ve said so many times — you need to be your own personal advocate!
