While some women who beat breast cancer want to continue on with their lives and move past the trying experience, others are affected by their diagnosis for the rest of their lives.
According to FayObserver.com
, one Fayetteville, North Carolina woman channeled her anger into helping others. Sherri Arnold Graham discovered she had breast cancer when she was a young mother of two. She survived, but went on to create the Sherri Arnold Graham Foundation.
"It was on my heart," she told the news source. "I wanted to help other women facing this. I believe I was diagnosed so I'd be able to help other women get through this."
Graham, who was a seminary student when she learned she had the disease, helps women who can't afford mammograms undergo the procedure. The foundation brings portable machines to hospitals and hosts multiple mammogram events each a year.
"Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, atheist, all of our voices need to be heard. Every voice needs to speak out about breast cancer awareness
," she told the news source.
According to the Center for Disease Control, Hispanic and Latinos are least likely to undergo a mammography.
