Faces of Breast Cancer: Find Your Story, Join the Conversation
“Without the experience of cancer, I might not have taken the time to be an ice climber, risked being a sculptor or upended my life to move closer to my granddaughter,” writes Amy, of Baltimore, one of hundreds of women and men around the world who tell their stories on the Faces of Breast Cancer project — The New York Times’s newly redesigned and enhanced interactive feature for those whose lives have been touched by the disease.
Readers can now search a database of breast cancer stories to find people like themselves — men and women with similar diagnoses, challenges or family situations — and learn from their experiences. Readers can alsosubmit their own stories sharing photos, memories, setbacks and victories from their breast cancer journey. And now everyone can join the conversation on subjects like body image, family, career — the whole host of things that change after a cancer diagnosis.
Faces of Breast Cancer aims to bring together the community of people behind the statistics, people who have learned, lost and loved after a life-changing diagnosis. We invite you to browse the stories, find someone like yourself, join the conversation and submit your own story.
