As a breast cancer overcomer.  I have a passion to help others that are going through the big “C” word.  I believe that through support, we will overcome.

Claudia Love

As an overcomer.  She was diagnosed in October 2002 and her first surgery with a lumpectomy November 2002.  Her second surgery for a mastectomy was February 5, 2003.  My Faith in God brought me through.  As a member, Shades of Inspiration has enabled me to find so many wonderful friends (my sisters).  We have shared so many heartwarming stories, love and joy.  I am so Blessed.

Deborah Crouch

I have not had breast cancer, but I had a friend  that was diagnosed with breast cancer and I did not understand or knew the effects of breast cancer, emotionally, spiritually and physically on the person but witnessed my friends fight and also her strength.  She eventually lost her battle and in turn affected my heart in a way I could not have ever imagined.  I wish my friend was able to receive the support services provided by these extrodinary ladies they are an inspiration for me and others.  "...Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong."
