Recognizing the Everyday Strength of Breast Cancer Survivors #CancerCantHide

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we turn the world pink, raising awareness and supporting global efforts to fight this disease.

But those who live with or have survived breast cancer feel its impacts every month, each day, in many ways. They are strong individuals who go on with everyday life – for this, they are heroes.

This photographer captured images of everyday life to reflect both important issues in making progress against breast cancer – early detection and understanding breast density – and to recognize how cancer seeps into the regular, common parts of everyday life.

With awareness, knowledge, science and technology we can kick cancer out of everyday life. #cancercanthide
