Sadly, cancer touches so many lives and women are a large percentage of those affected by cancer. We interviewed several women who have overcome their cancer diagnosis and asked them 'What makes you feel beautiful?'
Here is a glimpse into their stories--
Leonie from Dancing Paper Cranes was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and blogs about her day to day experiences and emotions with cancer. Heather Von St. James, a mesothelioma SURVIVOR has beaten the odds and devoted her life to raising awareness about mesothelioma cancer. Shannah was diagnosed with Leukemia a few years ago. She created a now thriving magazine that gave her something to fight for; you can follow her updates at her Tumblr as well. And then there is sweet Leah, a ten year old Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor who sees all of the beauty she has to offer by just being who she is. Finally, there is the strong and talented Yvonne; she had a brain tumor and small cells of cancer. Yvonee is "a fashionable survivor" and shares her beauty secrets at Style by Yvonne.
All of these amazing women have a passion for life. These are their inspiring and uplifting quotes about what makes them feel beautiful. Read, share, and comment! Tell us what makes you feel beautiful!
