7 Inspiring Quotes From Celebrities Who Have Battled Breast Cancer

Giuliana RancicIn a nation where one in eight women are expected to be treated for invasive breast cancer in their lives, we have a nation full of women who have come out on the other side. Among them are ladies like Giuliana Rancic and Hoda Kotb who have taken advantage of their celebrity status to talk about breast cancer in a way that reminds us there is hope! Thank goodness their quotes are out there for us to lean on.

After all, there is no way to describe what it's like for women to hear the words "you have breast cancer." Suddenly there are words being thrown at them they've never truly considered before: chemotherapy, radiation, lumpectomy, mastectomy, reconstruction. But we could always use something else. 

Something ... hopeful? Inspiring? Here's what some of the women who have fought breast cancer have had to say about it. From Betsey Johnson to Olivia Newton-John, these ladies know what it's like to be wondering, "How do I get through this?"

Feel free to pin them on Pinterest, and share them with the women you know who need to hear these words the most.

Which quote is your favorite?

    How life changing it is.. My husband lost his job and our insurance in '09. I got Triple Negative Breast Cancer is 2010. It left me feeling like I was torturedand left to Die! There are side effects you're never warned of! It didn't help that I couldn't afford many of the 'scripts, tests and complementary care Etc.. We're still together. Living on Love and a  Prayer. What a fight and life changerthis has been. I feel blessed for as far as I've come afterwards. I am hope so much that some day soon there will be Cancer prevention, A Cancer Cure & Quality of life after Cancer without recurrence!! I'm proud of all the survivors I've met. I honor in my hear, t mind, memories and all those that we've lost way too soon.
