She said in February, “I was always used to being the strong one, and during that time period, every wall I’d built up in my life came down. I also had a lot more time to look at myself and say, ‘I’m a pretty okay person’ and cut myself some slack. I’ve had a lot of those epiphanies. It’s OK to stumble.”
"I am continuing to eat right, exercise and stay very positive about my life. I am thankful to my family, friends and doctors for their support and, of course, my fans who have stood by me," she previously told PEOPLE.

I was stronger than I thought." Afterward, the breast cancer advocate released a 2005 album, Stronger than Before, dedicated to "going through difficulty and getting through it," she revealed on Good Morning America at the time.

Like Angelina Jolie before her, Bachelor and Bachelor Winter Games alum Murphy found out she tested positive for the BRCA 2 gene mutation, which greatly increases her chance of developing breast cancer. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, so Murphy — who placed fifth on Sean Lowe's season of The Bachelor — chose to get ahead of her diagnosis and have a preventative double mastectomy in April 2017. "I was just kind of like, You know, I don’t really want to be sitting on these potentially cancerous cells. Like, why hang on to something that is a ticking time bomb?" Murphy told PEOPLE of the initial conversation with her doctor. Of fans' support, she said, "It’s nice to share in commiserating or laughing with all these people who have come out to support me: complete strangers.

The actress (and wife of Tom Hanks) has an underlying condition she monitors regularly. An abnormality raised some red flags with her doctor, though cancer wasn't detected. However, a friend urged Wilson to get a second opinion – at which time she found out she did in fact have breast cancer, and in April 2015, she told PEOPLE she'd had a bilateral mastectomy. "I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health," she said. "You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed was found. I hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and trust their instincts if something doesn't 'feel' right."
In 2017, Wilson penned an article in Harper's BAZAAR that talked about the aftermath of having breast cancer. "We often assume that once you have had the surgery and treatment, you are fine," Wilson writes. "And hopefully you are. But I found that there were unexpected things that came along with having gone through something as frightening as having had cancer that I only heard about from my friends who’d had cancer too."

"The second I heard 'cancer,' I just remember my head went down, the ground went away, and I just dropped through the earth, and I was just dropping, falling," the E! host recalled on her reality show after learning she had breast cancer during a 2011 mammogram while undergoing a round of in vitro fertilization. But Rancic, who underwent a double lumpectomy and a double mastectomy to treat the cancer, marked a very special milestone just months later: her first Mother's Day with son Edward Duke.
“The key for me is getting out there and encouraging women to find it early,” she told PEOPLE. “More women find their breast cancer themselves than at the doctor or mammogram. I have women all the time who say, ‘I found my breast cancer early because of you and I’m going to be okay.’"

On a November 2016 episode of The Real, the Being Mary Jane actress talked about her diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma, found not by a mammogram, but an ultrasound. "A mammogram is like a snow storm and you're trying to find a snowflake," she said. "You don't see it until it's much worse and so that's why I really, kind of, want to advocate for women to get ultrasounds and early detection. The good thing was that it was treatable."

Now healthy, the Facts of Life star was diagnosed in 2012, and went through her battle largely alone, telling very few friends as she faded from the spotlight during treatment. But once she opened up a bit, "so many people began reaching out, wanting to help," she told PEOPLE. For Cohn it was a lesson in humility. “I needed to be vulnerable,” she said. “I had to learn that asking for help is not me being weak—it’s actually beautiful."

After an initial misdiagnosis, the Australian pop star postponed her Showgirl tour to undergo treatment for breast cancer in 2005.

"It's hard to express what I've learned from that, but a deep psychological and emotional shift has obviously taken place."

Komen for the Cure foundation. "I felt scared," the mother of three told ABC at the time. "And I thought, 'Oh, I don't want this to be happening.'

Bates was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2003, and then breast cancer in 2012. She decided to have a double mastectomy because of her family history with cancer. “My aunt had died from it, my mother had it, my niece had it,” she told PEOPLE. She tested negative for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutation that increases a woman’s risk of breast and ovarian cancer. A negative BRCA result is “not a get out of jail free card,” she said.

One of the cutouts in his support section was extra special for Rivera, he says, as it featured his late brother Mickey, who the outlet reported died of pancreatic cancer in 2015.
"That really hit me ... cause Mickey was such a fighter," he said. "Just to see him again ... that hit home."

"She refuses to go because she doesn't like people yelling at her son?" Roberts asked Rivera, before he confirmed, "That's true ... She doesn't appreciate all the bad words."

"There's so much that goes into this and it's so expensive," he said. "If we don't have quality healthcare in our country, I mean, we're the richest country in the world. We should."
"Everybody deserves the opportunity to fight and fight with everything that they're given," Rivera added. "And this is the opportunity now. So people got to go out and they gotta vote. They have to vote their conscience because it's important."

Earlier this year in August, the Washington Football Team announced in a statement that their coach was recently diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma located in a lymph node, which was detected through a "self-care check."
"The cancer is in an early stage, and is considered very treatable and curable, providing a good prognosis for Coach Rivera for a full recovery," the team said. "Coach Rivera has consulted with leading doctors and oncology specialists and is establishing his treatment plan in conjunction with the team's medical staff and his outside physicians."
"For now," the statement continued, "Coach has asked that the team keep things business as usual and remain focused, but a 'Plan B' is in place if it is determined that he should take some time off."
